Diary (End of November 2010)
Like much of the rest of the country, we have suffered a very early extreme Winter experience this weekend, with heavy snow and subsequent sub-zero temperatures (-15 degrees last night). Brrrrr.
Ground conditions mean that all formal exercise is on-hold, as are any lessons, youngster training, etc. etc. Thank goodness for the sand-turn outs that mean we can safely allow all the stabled horses a few hours to mooch around each day. Poor Tez has succumbed to the cold and has a suspect virus (another vets bill on the way!).
The "Live-Outs" (Cherry, Timber, Zela, Floy, Bobby and Pandora) are enjoying a free run of almost half the farm, so they have shelter, grazing and stream water to drink - and are very happy with their lot.
