By Sunday it was safe enough to ride again so Galahad and I set off up the hill. I love the snow but it did feel good to be riding.
Not that all the snow was gone – it wasn’t quite clear in the valley and we didn’t have to go far up the hill to find more.
It is all gone now and what with the heavy frosts and a few sunny, dry days, the ground was beginning to dry out and show signs of recovering from our very wet winter.
For the last couple of days though it has poured with rain and the mud is just as bad as it ever was. It does make life interesting – we usually use the stream to soak the ponies’ overnight haynets and with it flowing as strongly as it is at the moment that takes quite a bit of strength!
