Sleepover at the Stables

Sometimes it would be nice to stay over night at the stables,
especially if a foal is expected!

Make yourself comfortable in hay, have a good friend along...
But which are the necessities for a long night? 

If you choose pure wool or cashmere you will have a blanket for the rest of your life.
When choosing high quality and timeless patterns you will have a blanket to take 
with you where ever you might need some extra warmth!

Oil lamps or candles are the most ambient, but they would
be an extremely dangerous combination with hay.

LED lantern is a safe choice!
This one by Winsome House you can find in a webshop

Tea or coffe with caffeine keep you awake and a good thermo flask
 keeps them warm. Which would be your favourite one?

 Food. A lots of food.

The baits are usually the best part of the picnics and sleepovers. Make delicious 
sandwhiches, take nuts and fruits along, not forgetting fresh water. They will keep 
you going all night long. And to avoid the damage the mice might do, 
pack your bait in a basket! This traditional ‘Devon Maund’ picnic hamper is  
handwoven by master basket-weaver Hilary Burns using Devon willow and hazel.

For music and a weather forecast - a radio!
Digital Radio Ruark R1 was chosen as a most beautiful radio in the world 
by some magazine. And that´s true, it is very beautiful! 

The radio link will take you to the pages of  a German webshop "Manufactum".
If you prefere classic stuff and high quality, that is your place to shop,
There you find everything from toothbrushes to garden furniture in 
the best possible style and quality.

And here is also something in the best possible style and quality:

After all-night vigil and excitement it´s time to celebrate new life!
Could you do it any better way than having a glass of champagne with 
hand made truffels? 

This cool horse bit cooler is from The Longest Stay Ltd and
if you wish to make the truffels by yourself, you fnd a recipe from 

For the proud mother, of course,  a special treat.

We wish you all a succesfull foaling time and many happy
moments with the newcomers.

P.S. When the tailhair of your foal is long enough, you can have some of it 
woven into one ribbon with it´s mother ´s (and/or father´s) and have a beautiful
keepsake for ever.
