VIP visits and Santa's coming!

Hello, It’s me Anna!

Well it’s the middle of October and we have just had a very warm weekend, not that I’m complaining! 

So what has been going on at Cotebrook? Well…. Where do I start? We had a few VIP’s visit recently and they seemed VERY interested in me, taking photos and filming me.  I asked what was going on and they told me it was a secret! I hate secrets, so I am going to do everything I can to find out. I did overhear something about a special anniversary and the potteries.  If you hear anything let me know. 

We are also planning for another very special visitor, Santa! Along with his helpful Elves, he will be hosting "Breakfast with Santa”. Someone told me to say this next bit, so here goes…. "Tickets are available to buy online at or at the centre, book soon as it sold out early last year!”

The two weekends in December will also have other festive activities including our Christmas Jumper competition which his hosted by Santa himself! I’ve been wanting to enter for the last couple of years, and Alistair said he would knit me one, but that was two years ago now.  He said he keeps running out of wool as the jumper needs to be extra, extra, extra large to fit me.

Talking of Christmas have you started your shopping yet? I have been wondering what to get for Alistair.  Seeing as I am his "Miss World” I think I will take a selfie and get it framed, either that or some socks.  Did you know you can adopt any horse at the centre, including yours truly for Christmas, now that is a brilliant present!

I’m really looking forward to half term and loads of attention.  The autumn colours are beautiful around here.  If you do come over to Cotebrook, don’t forget to say "hi” and we can have a little gossip.

Until next time…
