Pictorial memories

Some years ago I photographed twin foals at Pulpit Farm in Hockley. I hope I remember correctly, but I believe they were called 'Moon' and 'Star'. Can anybody add to the recollections? When the girls were small we would walk in Hockley Woods, next to the Bull Inn. We had a Dalmation then and both the girls and the dog had a great time on the soft woodland floor among the autumn leaves. Are dogs still allowed? Finally a winter photo of rural Hockley.

I had a horse who was bred at Pulpits Farm in the 1960s. She was called Bracken and had a sister Fern. I believe the Arab stallion also lived there, was called Sheraan.

We are really sorry that you find the type hard to read but, unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to darken it as the type comes with the program we use to produce the site.

Your site is very good, however the pale grey is a little hard to read for those with poor eyesight. I went for a walk with my dog today and felt I was getting lost. Wish I'd had your map to show me which way to go! It would be good for the council to put more way markers in and maybe route numbers. I enter near HMP and exit near Guidewoods so never see a map. It's too dark to get directions from the sun but the atmosphere is beautiful.

Hello Robert, yes you're right about the twins. Their names were Moon & Star. Really lovely mares that were tiny but always had massive foals!
