  1. Dear Mike, I hope all is well on Connegar farm, I have stupidly mislaid your contact number and found you through your website. I need to pay you for the wonderful Top Reiter suit that my mum loves, especially as it has turned rather cold. I can either pay you in money or trees totally your choice.
    Thanks again for the suit you gave me I am never out of it, look forward to hear from you soon, please let me have your number if you email, many thanks Eyre.
