It's all in the detail...
Sorry for my delay in writing to thank you ALL for looking after us so well during our stay with you over New Year.
You have created the great balance of running the house and land with great passion, perfection and determination whilst maintaining a very calm relaxing ambiance for all of us to enjoy, Not an easy balance to achieve so thank you. Attention to all the small details - house, garden, farm - all taken care of. Hard work from everyone - watchful eyes and a team prepared to put in the hours to make it wonderful. We certainly had a super time re-charging our own batteries.
Constantijn Hahndiek's food was amazing. Every night a beautifully balanced feast that was both delicious and light enough to enjoy every evening. Shockingly greedy I know but opportunities not to miss! Lovely to be able to discuss and to share some of his passion and intrigue in his skills and produce. We have not been quite so healthy since our return home! Please thank him for the pot of "marmalade" - it is of course delicious.
Please also thank Scott Morgan for his calm patience with all our (my!) questions on the Summerhill Stud Tour. I hope the breeding programmes continue to go from strength the strength. The passion for running the business to the highest standard is clear for all to see. Hopefully ongoing rewards follow. Also some rain of course.
Celeste's dreams came true on Graffiti - shame to only connect with Hannah on our last morning but these fleeting moments can often make lasting impressions and hopefully we can return soon enough. Celeste is already pestering to return during foaling season.
Hopefully we will be able to visit again soon.
Best wishes to all.
Clare and Family
