Olympic Dairy 4: British Soil under Our Feet

So, people and annimals have all arrived safety in Great Britain.

However, not yet in Greenwich Park, we're at the Southern Cross Stud Farm owned by Jill and Jules Walker in Kent. Here we will spend a couple days training before the Olympic Equestrian Games begin.

Augustin OLD and Eichendorff had a good trip without any problems and they both walked off the ramp in a frisky mood. They were moved into two large boxes and obviously feel at home already - also because we brought Dr. med. vet. Dorothe Meyer's great hay and her special feed mixtures for both of them.

Unloading all of our baggage was not an easy job - the luggage for Kent only had to be unloaded, the bagges for Greenwich was supposed to stay in the horse van.

I have been out in the dressage ring of this beautifully located farm with both horses. Neither one of them shows any signs that they have been on a long trip - which is, of course, thanks to our excellent driver, Helmut Fassl.
