Mission Accomplished

Today was the 1st day ever that we have saddled up our 5 horses and ponies and taken  them for a ride, thought I was being a bit ambitious and wonder if there would be any disasters along the way but no it all worked well, so will tackle it again sometime soon.

We were meant to do this last year when we first opened but didn't get around to thing and another I guess, but we said it was a must do this year so Mum and I have been busy the last few days getting the shop all set up and after a bit of a bad weather start to the day the clouds cleared and we had a great time. We served a posh afternoon tea to all those who came through the door,nice china cups and lovely sweeties inside. It was so well received and people seem to love what we were doing,lots of nice comments and quite a few purchases were made, in fact well worth it for a first day open...Roll on the summer hope we can keep the shop stocked up enough....check out the pictures I took today they show what a great time everyone was having...the kids were behind the counter most of the day and did a fab job...great job team!
