You may have spotted my post about Raphaelle and her two horses, in Kent, yesterday, and on that same day, I also met Rachael and Lily.
Lily, who’s posh showname is Le Mor Infinity, is a thirteen year-old Anglo Arab. In fact, it’s her fourteenth birthday this Sunday coming! So, happy birthday, Lily! I hope your Mummy spoils you rotten.
Rachael has owned Lily for five years and together they mostly enjoy happy hacking, around Higham, on a Sunday morning. They also do the odd bit of schooling and like to take part in local clinics.
Rachael was telling me, on the day of the shoot, how she has just recently had her first baby, and we were laughing about the trials and tribulations of balancing babies and ponies. Thankfully Rachael has a supportive family and partner, who are happy to help her out.
She said that Lily has been a great source of ‘me time’ and that she’s really enjoyed her time to hack out and wind down, with her special girl.
Lily was quite a character and with that super pretty face, always keeping an eye on what’s going on around her, she was super easy to photograph.
Thanks to Rachael, for having me, and for being such a great sport, even when it felt like we might be at risk of blowing away! Lol!
