by Hayley  It’s too early to self diagnose ourselves as having ‘seconditus’ - an undesirable condition that is often hard to shake off. No, we haven’t caught the dreaded affliction that destines all our horses to filling the runners up spot. Quite the opposite, we are thrilled that they are clearly well and in good spirits, with our last four runners finishing in the ...

by Hayley  Two runners this afternoon with Kylie Rules making her seasonal debut at Carlisle and Troop heading to Redcar. The month of May has seen some glorious sunshine, and having moaned about the wet all winter, it is now time to complain about the bi-product of beautiful sunshine - hard ground! Things are firming up every where, the ground is hard and fast and those who need a bit of ju...

by Hayley  Headlad James is the definition of 'chilled' - level headed, calm and laid back (but far from lazy), nothing is a big deal, no problem too much to handle. This character trait is what makes him such a good rider, a horseman. Horses are highly tuned to pick up on your mood, whether it be anxiety, fear, impatience or excitement. Whatever you're feeling, they know about it and they f...

by Hayley It may be the end of the working week for many, but I can't say that it feels much like a Friday at Sun Hill today, we are as they say 'full of busy'. We have three runners scheduled, the first of which is Arnold this evening at Nottingham. The big lad is making his seasonal debut and is fit and well at home, the wide draw being the biggest negative. He's a giant of a horse and it is o...

by Hayley  Some new arrivals to report over the weekend - one equine and several of the feathered variety. One of the yard hen's has produced some gorgeous fluffy babies, much to the delight of Captain who proudly showed them off first thing this morning. She's currently sitting on another nest of eggs so perhaps we will have more chicks very shortly. We are a little animal mad here with dog...

It’s not often the "experts" get it right but this weekends sunny forecast was spot on, I am old enough to remember Michael fish’s gaffes and times have certainly moved on since then but, despite all the fancy gadgets and incredible machinery predicting the weather forecast it is still akin to finding the winners of the 2.30 at Newton Abbot, Newmarket or Nottingham. Yesterday was glor...

by Hayley Yesterday proved to be a good opportunity to take some photos - finally! The horses are really looking very well and the runners we've had so far have been encouraging. The Tour de Yorkshire passed by our doorstep yesterday afternoon and the nearby villages and market towns en route were cheerfully decked out in blue and yellow bunting with massive crowds out in force to watch the spect...

by Hayley  A rainy start to the morning but by 10.30am the clouds had shifted, and the sun was doing its best to peak through. It isn't quite splitting rocks yet but if the forecast is to be believed (and we do so with trepidation), we are set for a pleasant week. Wednesday's and Saturday's are our work mornings - meaning, these are the two days of the week that the horses do a quicker ...

by Hayley  Manic Monday? That’s a bit of an understatement! In the office, Anna is tucked away in ‘the box’, working away on her end of month accounts, while Berni and I occupy the desks in the main office, navigating our way through another manic Monday – being busy keeps things interesting, that's for certain! Having hit the deck this morning, Allen will no doubt ...

by Hayley  After what feels like the longest winter in memory, we can finally say that today we have our first runners of the turf season. Uncle Charlie and Red Charmer both head to our local track 'Catterick', which at only 9 miles down the road is extremely handy for us. They run in the 5.40pm, a race in which all horses are to be ridden by apprentice jockeys - Oliver Stammers and And...
