The Importance of Clean Stables
Cleaning stables can be time-consuming. We’d much rather be riding our horses in our free time! However,...

Hi all – let me introduce myself.

My name is Alfie Ovall and I live in a small village in Hampshire. I’m 9 years old and due to a few medical conditions have been retired (yah!) by Holly my vet.  My best friend is called Jasper who I share my paddock with and every morning we have great fun showing the girls next door our hot new dance moves. Our mums usually go into melt down at this stage, but “live each day like its your last” is what I say!

Mum has said on many occasions that she has had to do the walk of shame with me, but the most memorable was last Christmas when I decided to leave the confinements of the yard and take a stroll through the village. I was found outside the local pub….. I’d heard the local ale was great and just wanted to sample it! As usual I got the lecture about letting myself down…… Blah blah blah….. Shortly after this incident I earned the nickname Asbo Alfie!

I keep a likes and dislikes list which I update on a daily basis. Today my dislikes are: cyclists, pheasants, medicine and girls. My likes list are: mud, nut ball, Jasper, football, Holly my vet and a fresh smelling stable.

As you can see I love to keep my mum and others on their toes. It just makes the day so much more interesting. Life would be boring without a bit of Alfie fun…. And trust me, I know how to have fun.

Laters – Alfie xx
