It is starting to feel very spring like here. The birds are singing, the sun is shining (not all the time but quite a lot) and the flowers are starting to bloom. I am very much enjoying the primroses in the hedgerows.
I went into Galahad’s stable today and wondered why there was moss all over the floor. Last year some birds started to build a nest on one of the beams. They never finished it but someone is giving it a go now. Hopefully they will have more luck than last year.
This week I have been practising mounting from a mounting block – or at any rate the wall which serves as a substitute. We are going to another trec event soon and since we had so much trouble with this last time I thought we had better work on it. Typically we had no difficulty all in the yard – if only we could do as well when we go out! I even managed to get on from the wrong side a couple of times. That didn’t go quite so well – Galahad moved a little each time – but that was entirely my fault. I am just very bad at mounting from the off side. Something for us both to work on.
