Yesterday was simply beautiful and the ponies took full advantage of the sunshine by simply walking through a gate that was accidentally left open and gorging on the lush grass. It wouldn’t really have been a problem except that it is quite a steep slope and the ground is still very slippery. Luckily they were far too interested in the grass to run about!
We thought we would have terrible trouble catching them and dragging them away for a ride but actually Cookster just stood stock still.
Galahad was another story and would not let me near him.
He was quite happy to follow Cookster up to the stables though! We found some very interested visitors when we got there – waiting for their breakfasts.
Sadly we didn’t have any for them.
When we did get out for our ride we had a lovely time. The primroses are suddenly flourishing – I thought there were plenty of them before but overnight they seem to have multiplied and now there are whole banks covered in them. They were beautiful!
