We recently had to have the fields topped again, which meant that I had to put all of my jumps away. Then it started raining and we couldn’t cut the grass. It didn’t seem worth getting the jumps out when I would only have to pack them up again so it has been a couple of weeks since we have been able to jump.
Last week however, it was finally dry, the grass was cut and the jumps came out of storage. I found this lovely moth on one of them – it was huge!
Its wings were open when I first saw it but it closed them before I could get to my camera. It was beautiful though.
Galahad seemed as excited as me to see the fences – he was rushing rather to start with and he was putting in some enormous jumps. We then had a horrid jump over the filler and completely demolished the fence. After that he was much more sane!
He was actually jumping quite nicely and we had a lovely evening in the field. We didn’t overdo it though – it was still pretty hot even at nine o’clock in the evening!
