Just When...

Just when you think things can't get much worse... they get worse!!!! I must have inadvertantly killed loads of robins this year for all the disasters that have occurred!!!

So what is it this time I hear you shout... come on tell us - well, early hours of  yesterday (Sunday/Monday) morning, our farmer called us to say the horse box, our old but much loved lorry, was ablaze!!! We dragged on clothes and drove up to the farm to find the lorry completely burnt out and steaming gently. The firemen were just finishing dowsing it down. It had taken 3 tenders of water to put it out, and there had been more than 1000 degrees of heat at the fire's height!!! There was NOTHING left in there... not even the steering wheel!! The partitions were warped and twisted... and no sign of ANYTHING that had been inside...

There had been some pieces of show equipment in there, obviously. The season was not finished when we came home from Egypt, but we had to stop and not do the last two shows because of my and Miranda's broken bones!!! Well, things can be replaced, but we cannot replace the rosettes that Freddie, Miranda and the boys worked SO hard to earn

For example, this was our BESTIST day, with a haul of 4 firsts!! That was a SUPER day, and at the edge of the photo you can see just a fraction of the others we won this season... we can never replace them... and how did all this happen you may be asking??? The fire chief said it was arson!!!so someone cut the door to break in and set it aflame, for some reason... The boys were devastated, and so were we adults. Mindless violence and vandalism...

So now the fight starts with the insurance company, to recoup some of the things lost and get enough back towards another lorry, cos we are not giving up!!!!!!! Burnt lorry and my mum will NOT get in the way of us having great family times with the horses we love...

Please send some positive healing and protective vibes to help us have nothing more horrid happening, cos I am rapidly going under!!! Have got a chest infection just now and started taking the happy pills yeserday, to try and get my act together!!!
Love and light
Frankie

Oh, Frankie! It is so sickening when these mindless idiots sink so low. I feel for you and Fred and hope that your grandchildren will replace their First place rosettes ten fold. Positive vibes already on their way.

What a terrible time you are having Frankie, I really hope that you have turned the corner and good times are now going to land at your door. I know what I'd like to with these mindless idiots. I know that the children will be upset but hopefully they will be just like you and be determined to replace those rosettes and carry on with the great family days you all have,
Huge pots of good vibes on the way and a hug or two as well.

Oh, Frankie - how terrible. Send you positive vibes and a big hug. Keep my fingers crossed that there won't be much trouble with the fire insurance.

Hun, don't let the ba**teds grind you down...you have so much on your plate at the moment but I know you will come through this. X

What a saddening happening for you but I do hope the insurance doesn't play up too much. The only one consolation is that no person or animal was hurt. You'll all have to try hard now to win more rosettes and don't let the b******s grind you down.
Love Jo x
