Worldwide Christmas wishes as its the close of a sunny and warm Christmas day in NZ and the start of a grey and windy one in the UK.
Tim and Jonelle have their first Christmas with Otis who is proving to be quite the entertainer and opinion is currently divided as to whether he is shaping up to be a sumo wrestler or an All Black. Scooby is also prepping up for the excitement of actually being allowed to open the presents under the tree as he has made a couple of attempts already which have been thwarted.
Holly is in charge of cooking Christmas Dinner for the Mere Farm troops who gathered together for a group hack as can be seen above. A typical cross match of Mere Farm inmates… from left, Megan is on a just off the track 3 year old chestnut, Leo, then we have Basil on Happy Boy, who as always is interested in something really exciting half a mile away, Lucy on Spartacus who is a bit of a dude, Holly on Falco who looks very grown up and Lorenzo on Classic Moet who is clearly not keen on standing still. No change there then!
To all the owners, supporters and wellwishers, have a great festive break and raise a glass to 2018!
