A gaggle of girls perched on dusty haybales as they fussed over groomed ponies. The scent of oiled wood mingled with plaited manes and well worn leather saddles. They feasted on well stewed apple and cinnamon crumble with creamy toffee sauce, along with hazelnut praline. The giggling girls pursed their cherry lips in surprise at the sudden heat. They fed their ponies waxy apples and hard pears. They bounced old basket balls on freshly cut grass, then lolled in the sun while weaving daffodils into their hair. They munched on banana bread with clotted cream washed down with homemade ginger beer.
