Farriers, a picnic and new friends

This week we went to Pollok Park to see the farriers put new shoes on the Clydesdale horses. farriers at work

It was really interesting to watch though the smell of burning horse hair was a little overwhelming at times. We had chosen to go there because we knew another home ed group, based in Pollokshields, was intending to be there. It was lovely to meet them and we all hope to meet up again soon. After the horses had been shod we headed over to the river for a picnic

I was impressed to discover that some of our other new friends from the Steiner School had cycled all the way over from the West End. The sun shone for us all day and we soon had a grand collection of bikes and children of all ages – playing games, making chalk drawings on the path and some just studying the life in the grass close up.
