We had a heavy frost again this morning – so much so that the latches on the gates were frozen shut and I couldn’t shift them.
Luckily, one of the gates also has a bolt which was still movable so the ponies were able to go out!
I was also fascinated by the hurdles round the sheep pen – they are hollow and the uprights fill with water. This is what had happened this morning!
I love these mornings, despite the bitter cold. They are really beautiful. Plus, they mean that it is finally cold enough to wear my highwayman hat cover. It is lovely and cosy!
