This is Theo, another Gelderlander.....isn't he handsome
and matches well for the carriage with Solo..
preparing to 'put to' the carriage for a training session
These horses match so well and we are hoping that their
training together will mean that Carriage Rides will be
open to the public very soon
meanwhile, when it came to lunch time I grabbed the opportunity to take some photos
(these are tenant cottages on the estate)
near the Old Granary, which is on staddle stones
In fact a couple of years ago Google streetview cycled round the estate
and trust me to have been stood there!! Here's the picture they took
....so I got me blitted out!!! (actually I was sketching at the time...no obsession there then!)
Opposite where I was standing is the entrance to the Carriage museum and stables...I absolutely Love these gates..
and I found time for a quick sketch of the cottages, but didn't realise I had used a non waterproof pen, doh!. I coloured this in when I got home and just worked around the fact that the pen had been a mistake.
Til next time at Arlington....when I hope to get some videos done
