Some interesting photos from two days ago of a side we rarely see. Zara and the Prince of Wales met in the Royal Box at Ascot...

I loved the series of photos surrounding that shot. You are right, we don't see enought of moments like these, but it seems that the newly relaxed, and dare one say . . . laid back, Charles is proving a dab hand at PDA's! :wub:

Didn't he came up with the name Zara for her? It's nice to see them so close. I love her hat at Ascot.

I doubt Princess Anne would let anyone else name her child for her. It's certainly an unusual name. I think she's the first Zara in the BRF, isn't she?

Prince Charles actually suggested the name Zara to his sister. It means....dawn something. For the life of me..>I can't find the actual reference.

^"Dawn of the day" I think. I think Zara derives from a Greek name that means this, and in turn the Greek word derives from a word from an African language.

On the topic of Zara's current events, I just want to say that I have fallen in love with Tiger Lily the horse. Though Tiger Lily's debut is at the expense of Toytown's injury. Toytown has been injured before I think. I wish Zara would not make Toytown jump. The poor horse does not have a choice and has to keep having her/his leg injured. After a horse reaches a certain age it's probably not a good idea to make him/her keep jumping, and Toytown is approaching 17.... I know horses can live well into their 30s and beyond, but still. :ermm:

Bright as the dawn! :doh: Yeah, that's it! :flowers:

Hey, I was wrong about Toytown. Toytown is 14. I misunderstood an article which said Toytown would be 17, which is past the typical age for Olympic horses, in 2012.

The only articles I can find, (including the earlier ones I and DoM posted) all report that Toytown is 15 at the moment, except the Mail and wiki. :flowers:

Zara had entries both this last Saturday and Sunday all of which she withdrew. She has also withdrawn this coming weekend's entries.

She might still be on R&R in the South Seas.

The Chronicle of the Horse (the bible) says Toytown is 15.

Lemon Lyman 06-30-2008 12:48 PM

The Sun is reporting today that Zara and Mike might appear in Strictly Come Dancing (Dancing with the Stars) in the Autumn

blondie28 06-30-2008 01:21 PM

That would be sooo cool! Zara and Mike are the best couple, and they would be great dancing partners (and funny too!):lol:

Lemon Lyman 06-30-2008 02:54 PM

I suppose she could get away with it as it is for charity (Children in Need). I believe they are friends with Matt Dawson so you never know

Horses for sale, Equestrian news - Horse & Hound has published a new collection of beautiful photos of Toytown and Zara and a fellow rider.

Scroll right down to the bottom of the opening page.

I see what you mean.

The recent Toytown set can be found by following the link to the Gallery.

But when I looked up their website from my Favourites just now the Toytown set was being used.

Duke of Marmalade 07-05-2008 05:56 AM

From a professional point of view times are tough for the couple - first Zara forced to miss the Olympics, now Mike being axed from the first England rugby quad by the new manager, Martin Johnston.
