Both ponies seem to finally be over their colds. They have certainly taken their time! They are no longer coughing, the runny noses have stopped and we are all much happier. Not that the ponies ever gave any signs of actually feeling unwell but they must feel the difference.
From a selfish point of view it is lovely to be able to ride without constantly worrying about pushing for too much when they are not feeling fit – or even making them cough. Galahad appears to be back to his normal level of fitness for the time of year – that is to say not very fit but a lot better than he was. He can at least trot a reasonable distance without puffing!
It is so good to have them back to normal. Once the light gets better we’ll be able to get some decent rides in. Not to mention that now we will be able to go out and compete again, hurrah!
