Orgilgo Bay follows up with an impressive second place in the Listed Coolmore Canford Cliff Stakes in Tipperary and reverses form with Aga Khans Dibayani, beating him by 4.5 lenghts. This earnis him a Timeform Rating of 102!

More Black Type for Third Dimension! Check our racing page for details of our 2012 results.

On the farm front we do not have much to report except that there has been rain every day  for two months and that it is difficult to get even the most routine of the outside and farm work done.  Heavens seem to open as soon as the lawnmower or topper get started! However, this morning the mystery object that is sometimes called SUN has made a rare brief appearance.

We have been busy doing field drainage work, a new walkway and a large hardcore area. The plan is to eventually  put up a shed and make this a turn out area for winter. With land getting poached even in summer we can no longer afford to get the fields ploughed up by horses during the winter months. Brendan, our fencing contractor assures me that we still hold the Irish (if not Europen or even world!) record of the most gates per 100m of fencing!! This time six have been added and Laura tells me that if she cant sleep she tries to count Swordlestown Little gates instead of sheep!

All animals are well and enjoying the rare sunshine!

Happy dogs in Lawlers Lane and a resident of another kind....

Beautiful brave rose!
