Celebrating Chinese New Year Eve of the Year of the Horse with a Minstrel, a Troubador and a Roundabout Horse

Rosemary Sutcliff’s rocking-horse Troubador

It is, I think, the eve  of Chinese New Year – the next year is the year of the horse. So a little celebration with a picture again of Rosemary’s beloved Troubadour, now at home here in Leicestershire countryside and perhaps preparing to ride the fields on Midsummer Eve? Why? The answer perhaps is to be found in Rosemary’s lovely little story The Roundabout Horse, also pictured. And she was, according to academic Margaret Meek, writing in Books for Keeps.
