We've been enjoying a look back through the archives and sharing a few finds on our social media channels, but the article below hadn't seen the light of day for many, many years before being unearthed last week! Horse & Hound - November 1997 (if you wish to read the article, we have included close up photos at the bottom of page) We've been cracking on getting all the jobs done around Su...

by Ann Finding things to write about that are not too boring, miserable or depressing is a tad more difficult than I might have imagined. In fact blog writing is like a new art form, work with the horses and elsewhere at Sun Hill is the same, yet different. The routines are similar, but not the same. Confused? Join the club. Social media is busier than ever and on twitter recently someone posted...

by Ann Lovely news this morning from one of the ponds at the lodges. Lillie Lodge pond plays host to a wonderful variety of wildlife including a pair of Black swans who arrived here almost four years ago and have made Sun Hill, and in particular Lillie lodges pond, their home. They have provided our guests with some unforgettable moments and are the best PR machine imaginable, at least they used ...

by Ann The Sunshine at Sun Hill was fabulous today and we were able to get some of the horses outside for a bit of downtime. The water treadmill was kept busy this morning with Stripey performing his usual ‘nanny’ role looking after the horses who are less experienced. Stripey might be an ‘elderly gent’ but he looks as fit and well as ever as he towers over Sarah!  S...

By Ann Lockdown is driving many people mad but George and I have never been happier. In fact, having decided not to bother drinking again after an unpleasant bout of something horrid in December 2017/January 2018 which lasted almost six months and saw one good doctor lose his job for failing to treat it properly, I haven’t missed it one bit. Good quality sleep has been guaranteed every nigh...

As the biggest and best known horse race in the world, it feels wrong to bypass the Grand National without any form of acknowledgment or celebration. ITV will show the Virtual Grand National tomorrow at 5pm, with a line-up of 40 horses which were the ones most likely to have lined up in the race proper. Previous form, age, weight etc for each horse has been considered and a mathematical algorith...

by Ann A short video of the brilliant Bill Gates was sent to me recently by Nick, George’s son and it’s well worth watching, he predicted a virus like Coronavirus four years ago and warned how the world was simply not prepared for it. It never ceases to amaze me why governments around the world ignore brilliant minds like that of Bill Gates? They ignore their knowledge, wisdom and com...

Sticking to The Rules might be easier for some than for others. For one man it is simple and here he opens up and explains how he and his wife are coping right now. “We are a week into self-isolation and it's really upsetting me to witness my wife standing at the living room window gazing aimlessly into space, with tears running down her cheeks. It breaks my heart to see her like this, I ha...

by Ann The horses don’t know the world is currently in turmoil, they are simply ‘delighted’ to be out and about and enjoying the sunshine. The weather has been glorious all week and the soggy paddocks are drying out in superfast time. The infamous ‘March Winds’ have swept in and done their job and while we wouldn’t normally be turning horses out yet because of ...

by Ann Rumour has it that former jockey Kieren Fallon’s bid to do his shopping in super-fast time proved disastrous (according to the Racing Post) thanks to the not so Great, British trend of panic buying. After running out of room to manoeuvre in the crowds - and patience for standing in long lines of potentially unhealthy people, he allegedly quit Tesco for a stab at Aldi where it seemed ...
