Marine from France stayed for 6 wet, muddy weeks in March and April 2018, but the weather never dampened her spirits. She cheerfully looked after the horses and cleaned the fields every day, and even beat us at canasta and Quiddler in the evenings. We took her visiting - to the Arabian horse exhibition in Newmarket, to Shadwell Stud, to West Kington AI operations - and to numerous coffee mornings. She now has a serious cappuccino habit.
