Thank you to everyone who sent their best wishes to Barnsy following his video debut on social media.  He looks forward to keeping you updated with his thoughts on the world over the coming weeks.

I spoke to him last night and he has says he has so much food, he’s thinking of sending out some food parcels to the village.

I was sad to hear the passing of former trainer Peter Beaumont.  Peter trained Gold Cup winner Jodami amongst others and was an excellent horseman, stockman and gentleman.  It is often said at these times that you’d never hear them say a bad word about anyone but this was never truer in the case of Pete Beaumont.

I would love our chats together and always came away feeling better about the world.  A loveable man who loved life to the last.
