Meg Wade of Castlebar Arabians

champion endurance rider Meg Wade is recovering from a fall she had while competing:
While her husband is nervous, she has no fears.
"I'm not scared at all about getting on a horse. I'm not scared of horses not one little bit, I'm looking forward to it," she said.
"I definitely want to ride again, and as long as I can ride I definitely want to compete. I am still competitive. It will happen I am sure."

Ancient Cats

We met this cat at the Louvre and it looked so much like our beloved Betty (she now resides permanently in the garden, non-mummified but peaceful). They really had cats down, those Egyptians. So poised and compact!

wild horses

Many years ago I was lucky enough to get a book ($2!) called Wild Horses. It was written by Hope Ryden. She'd spent a lot of time out in the field, documenting the stories and behaviour of mustangs. She took some beautiful photographs and I thought I'd share some sketches of mine - inspired by Hope's images.
