The Friesian

This is a 4 year old Friesian stallion we saw in Seville this week. Out of the ten available, we chose this one. He has a magic quality and a character that goes with his looks. Gorgeous isn't he?

The Animo Course in Almería

We have written up our Animo course, held this past weekend in Almería at the Centro Ecuestre Albero, over on our sister blog Animo AAT. The course dealt with the basics of therapeutic riding, since little is known about the international norms here in Spain and we also learned how to work and communicate together in a multidisciplinary team. The course was a big success (and our thanks to the Red Cross for their special demonstrations) and we plan further courses in the future.
This was Animo's first course to be offered in its new headquarters, the Centro Ecuestre Albero.

Raven the Poster Dog

All this rubbish about taking a mongrel dog home from the pound. Here's Raven, a Briard. They say these are the most beautiful dogs of all - and in this candid picture, you won't help but agree!

Arturo the Donkey

One year, we went to the feria de bestia in Albox. Sheep, horses, pigs and, look, a little donkey. We called him Arturo and brought him home in the Nissan.
