Claire is taking the loss of both Peter and Tess badly. Unable to raise energy or enthusiasm for anything, including the imminent birth of Blaze’s foal, she nonetheless refuses to accept she is suffering from emotional stress. Things reach crisis point when she decides to cancel her contract with Australian Bloodlines and sell Drovers Run. She offers it to Harry who agrees to buy.
Tess meanwhile is being kept busy by the success of the café in Melbourne and is unaware of recent events back at Drovers, and Simon is trying to see that things stay that way.
Despite being cautioned against it, Nick starts riding again, but getting back in the saddle proves to be the easy part. Alex returns to Killarney.
