Banbury Cross

Back at Banbury we took Molly to the Vet to be spayed. A 20 minute walk across town past the famous cross and a statue of the 'fine lady' on a horse. We were amused to see a small frog sitting there by the horses hoof. The original cross was removed in 1602 and replaced in the 19th century.

Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross,

To meet a fine lady on a white horse,

With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,

She shall have music where ever she goes.

A fine lady

Next day we collected Molly and managed to carry her back to the boat. Resting at the Cross and admiring the rather fine statue of that horse. Molly spent a quiet day in her bed. Then we went back to have her checked and the plaster dressing removed. Have arranged to remove the stitches at the Rugby vet.  Meanwhile she is quite wound up with restricted exercise.
