When the Covid-19 pandemic hit Ireland, not for a minute did I think it was going to be like this, nor could I have imagined what it was going to do to our lives.

Everyday things such as not being able to casually call in to visit neighbours, go to the marts, not being able to sell calves in the same way as usual and, of course, the hardest one for me – no shows for Assagart show horses.
