Flossy is well known to many on the British Dressage Forum as a teller of interesting stories and perhaps the odd joke or two. We have selected a few tales for your pleasure.


A visit to the BETA trade fair was a great experience . The range and quality of products was outstanding , every year there are better and more things to entice the public to loosen the grip on the money pockets. From all the displayed , the one that caught the attention of the majority was the new “Allan Davis VALEGRO range grooming brushes”. These brushes were methodically developed and created by the BEST horse carer in the world for the BEST horse in the world . These brushes offered an exquisite experience both for the groomer and the groomed. From the handle side the brushes offers the user the most delicate of feel , while the bristles are so soft giving the horse the most sensual grooming experience. There were endless number of people by the stand, all clamming to touch feel and purchase one of these brushes for their special horse. Eventually I reached the front of the queue and as I was feeling and testing the softness of the selected brush ,the familiar looking lady on the other side of the counter said “ YOU don’t look like the GROOMING type Mr P”. “it is not for a horse” I replied “It is for our new family member , the one with the softest coat of them all , Tasty the sausage dog !!”. The familiar looking lady smiled and said “ I know what you mean I having one just for my PUSSY “. Her Husband that was serving another customer alongside her , turned his head with a puzzled look on his face and said “ WE DON’T HAVE A CAT DEAR !!!!!”
