ESB Irish Nimbus hiding after being found guilty of breaking into the feed area and demolishing what he could as well as tipping over a bucket of molasses.

Words cannot express what it means to have the old man home again. ESB Irish Endeavour has rallied after his illness and seems to be comfortable again. Thank you all so much for sending in your best wishes, it really helped!


Love, love, love it! Special friends Lottie Lawler and her mum Frith bring my colours in for afternoon tea!

Eddie (ESB Irish Endeavour 4* eventer) is really sick but being well looked after by Will and Emily with the aim of bringing him back home as soon as possible. He has given us all so much and now deserves a dignified end, so please send him your thoughts, prayers and good wishes :(

Great news!

Most people know ESB Irish Nimbus, he is an institution! He has been quite unwell and we were starting to fear the worst (he is nearly 20 yrs old). He has been scoped and had an ultra sound (see his clipped girth area) to discover large tum...ours in his mediastinum (the area in the chest between the lungs, that contains the heart, the aorta, the trachea and the oesophagus). Well after much fuss and many discussions about what to do next, he has rallied to graze the 'long acre' yet again as 'Charlie the Unicorn'! Bless him oxo
ESB Irish Fiddle has come out of retirement at 17 and after .... 4* competitions and is happy to be back in work!
Fiddle with his new friend Sorrel Porteous in the UK
