1. Just came by to say hello. Over the past week we've all been moving into the newly renovated facilities, so, here's a collection of photos old and new.
Of all the horses at Royal Somerset, Alcatraz was hands down the easiest going. He was a bulky, and short legged, but he was happy to be pushed around and manoeuvred into place. All he wanted was the treats that Kara was stashing in her pockets. He stood like a saint, staring down at the camera while Kara stapped his photo half a dozen times. None of them seemed to do this gorgeous stallion any justice. However, even saints had their limit, and Alcatraz really wanted those treats. Clearly, he'd had enough. Kara led the stallion back to his field, but not before one last hug.

"Easy girl," Mason cooed softly, holding his hand out to the dark thoroughbred and hoping she wouldn't spook today. Her ear flicked in his direction, and her eye was turned towards him, but she didn't seem tense. "I just want a nice picture to show my brother, he misses you." Holly snorted, looking at him like she understood, then moving her head ever so slightly as if she was posing. "There we go. Good girl."
