The ponies are constantly escaping from their fly masks. At the moment it is just a fact of life that when I go out to see them the chances of them both wearing hats are fairly slim.
When we first put them on this year they actually managed not to remove them for a couple of weeks and I was very hopeful I would have a summer without having to walk round the fields hat hunting.
Obviously that is not going to happen but I have found I can make use of the ponies – or at least Cookster – to find them.
As you can see, Cookster is great at this game. Me – less so!
I haven’t tried it with Galahad yet – mainly because I haven’t had the chance. I’m sure it is something which will scare him at first but it’s probably quite a good exercise to try and it might even help us with our trec obstacles. Plus, it’s fun!
