Well to say I was excited to get over to the McDonalds for a full afternoon of playing ponies and dogs is an understatement. After speaking with Claire briefly on Friday to make sure we were all still good for the following day, she ensured me that all seven (yes that’s right 7!!!) horses had been bathed (2 of them being greys) and everyone was excited to get some photos done.
I’d already been to the McDonald’s a few years back so knowing their beautiful garden would be in full Spring bloom and the vast areas we could use for backdrops I was eager to get shooting. Poppy started off with her ponies, we had the two greys Lulu and Murphy, as well as Taro.
I’ve known Poppy throughout Pony Club for a few years now, so it’s lovely to catch up on a personal level and see the girls enjoy their ponies in a chilled environment in the bliss of their own home. Seeing everyone competing is lovely, but it doesn’t beat sitting there for a chat after a photo shoot with a cup of tea and biscuits 😉
My thanks to Claire and her family for inviting me over. I had a lovely time, and hope you all did too!!
