What is lockdown life in Spain like, here at Ranch Siesta Los Rubios?
Well firstly it’s very quiet without everyone coming and going. Caroline the owner and her children are here looking after nearly 30 horses and ponies on their own, every single day. That is really hard work.
It’s been hard to get deliveries of food organised and then there’s a lot of lifting and shifting to do.
But the horses are all happy. They are all being taught to use the horse walker so they can get their exercise each day. They are out playing in the school together and forming new friendships. Happy herd time is very important for horses and their mental health. Socialising is very therapeutic.
But life goes on. And here is a little glimpse of our version of lockdown life in Spain!
