1) Introduce yourself
Hello I’m Vicky & I live in West Yorkshire with my Partner Guy and our daughter Eden.
2) How many little cubs do you have?
I have just the one Little Cub, she is very demanding, so along with my dogs & horses she is more than enough!
3) Where abouts do you live?
We live on a small(ish) livery yard in West Yorkshire
4) Town or country?
Definitely country, I prefer the quiet to the hustle & bustle
5) Early mornings or night owl?
Definitely early mornings for me… until it’s foaling time and then I’m a converted night owl.
6) Coffee or Tea?
Hmmm being from Yorkshire it should really be Tea, however I’m most definitely a coffee person.
7) Any pets?
We have 3 dogs, Dudley my springer spaniel who’s 8yrs old, Dora our German Shepherd, (the dopiest dog) who is 2 1/2yrs old and then there’s Guy’s work companion, a very opinionated and spoilt Jack Russell called Maisie who is 9.
We also have 4 horses, a foal and a Shetland pony.
My two ridden horses, Troy & Fred, both 9 and both Irish sport horse. Troy is a permanently filthy skewbald and Fred is tall (18.1hh) dark & handsome dark bay. We have a retired Mare, Edwina who is 27, a broodmare called Kandy who’s career was cut short due to a trailer accident. Penelope the foal is just 4 months old and incredibly bold and full of sass… last but not least we have a new addition with Shetland pony Max who is proving to be the perfect gentleman until Guy tries to catch him! 😂
8) Favourite tipple
It’s got to be Rhubarb Gin. I can polish a bottle off in one evening if I’m not careful! Accompanied of course with Fevertree Elderflower tonic.
9) Favourite season
I love winter! Baileys hot chocolate on an evening, wrapping up warm, snow, the smell of open fires and not forgetting the stodgy winter food such as stew & dumplings.
10) Facebook or Insta?
For personal use definitely insta but for work purposes then I’d say Facebook
11) What are you currently watching on Netflix?
Poldark! How on earth have I Only just started watching it?!
12) Secret crush
It would normally be Chris Hemsworth but now he has been overshadowed by Ross Poldark 😍
Social Media Marketing Manager for Throstlenest Saddlery. My friend & I have also just up a new venture with a PR & Marketing company called Rural Scene PR
14) Any hobbies?
My partner & I love going clay pigeon shooting in our free time.
15) Favourite food
Pizza with extra pepperoni
16) Favourite place to go on hols
Wales – we don’t get lots of time off, especially with having horses so Wales is perfect for us as we aren’t that far away from home.
17) What did you miss most during lockdown?
Meeting up with friends and doing our Mum club swimming days followed by lunch.
18) What did you like most about lockdown?
The opportunity to be anti-social with a valid reason!
19) What should you be doing right now?
I should be riding the horses but it’s raining here and I fancy being a fair weather rider today so I am hiding away inside.
20) Best bit about being a Cotswold Baby Co Brand Rep
We Absolutely love the clothes and the fact they’re very country themed. Such a friendly company and following.
