Today the farrier came at 7.30 am and was delighted with how 'Hoof Armor' (one of our major sponsors) see www.hoofarmor.com had kept the hooves from too much wear and in excellent condition. Nelson, our Standard Poodle went for a clip, so he now looks very sleek and handsome and ready for the journey. Tracy Brown in South Moreton is a 'poodle expert' having won Crufts several times with her poodles. She very kindly donated Nelson's clip to the cause – MS Research and he came home with a discreet little bow on his collar – Angus Dart our next door neighbour farmer came to the rescue when a friend needed to borrow a shooting stick. He donated a huge bale of straw to the cause – so its all happening and very exciting!
