It is very easy, as I have discovered, to come home from work and sit down for a cup of tea and a chat. Then to look out of the window and think, ‘It’s getting a bit dark to ride really – I’ll have to ride tomorrow.’ Especially when the ground looks like this.
However, this evening I deliberately did not sit down at all when I got home. Instead I gulped down my tea, got changed and went straight out to the ponies. Cookster was sporting some additional decorations!
It’s just mud splashes – not some dire disease!
It was a lovely evening and Galahad and I very much enjoyed our hack. He seemed to relish the chance to have a canter on the verge too – they probably aren’t running too much in these wet fields!
