After that Lea and Dawn came to the stables and Lea rode on Buster in the round pen. Midline and Faustine stayed with her to take pictures. During this time Constance, Ava and Marion came back to the house to take their shower and pack up their clothes. We did the blog and we were going to eat with Lea, Dawn and Orian for our last diner. After we are going to do the play, it’s Rafonsel. Pierre is the narrator and the Mother bird, Constance is the narrator too, three chicks and the Hound Dog, Ava is Rafunzel, Midline is the climber, Faustine is the narrator too and Bumble bee and Marion is the Prince.
