  1. Hovis is for sale!!!Some lovely photos.He thought it was time to remove his Madonna bra. Oops!

    1. Dear Sheena,

      This is great news! Happy beyond words that the cyst is gone from Hovis’ eye.
      Just love his (and Karen’s) talent for hilarious writing.

      Thanks for posting the link.
      Hugs and Love

    2. Thanks for sharing.
      Love them both very much.
      Knew that mask reminded me of something and Karen nailed it. So happy for them. Behave, Hovis…hehehe.
      Keep us posted about Toast!

  2. Sheena,
    You first sentence gave me a start! I should have known that was just Hovis being himself. Thank you for posting his blog. Sounds as if he is getting better each day.

  3. Sad to see the mighty Thistlecrack fade so quickly at Newbury today.I know it was his first race back for awhile but….I have always believed it was a mistake to send this crack staying hurdler chasing but that is just my opinion.Hope the real Thistlecrack turns up on Boxing day.Beer Goggles won at 40-1and Oliver Sherwood had a lovely win with the Organist who now belongs to JP.Many congratulations.

  4. Congrats to all the winners. i wish I was one of the lucky ones to stand in the same space as our Queen. Have a wonderful time.
