Visit from China

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This week we had a wonderful visit from students, parents and teachers from the Kingold Primary School in China.

Staying for just one night, our guests were able to experience a little bit of life on the farm, feeding the horses and the chickens, playing with Travis and Kaylee, swimming in the pool, and spotting kangaroos.

Teaching the horses to swim

It’s so wet at the moment, that we can’t train the horses by riding them.

So – it’s time to teach them to swim.  It takes time and patience to get the horses to swim a lap of the horse pool.

We have two people with leads and Steve has to get wet and coach the horse into the pool.

Bonnie’s going in for a swim – this is her first time, and we are all really happy with her progress.

Bonnie is Crown the Warrior’s older sister – we hope she’ll be racing in the next couple of months.
