Summer Grazing

As the heat wave has killed off so much of the grass, we are having to get inventive in the ponies’ turnout.  Not that they need too much to eat – they are practically bred to live on air!  They do need something though and we have been making the most of the land.

There is a lane leading up over the stream which is very overgrown and muddy – you wouldn’t get a car along it.  I have written before about riding up it but now the ponies are eating it.

It is actually very useful as they trample the undergrowth as well as eating it so hopefully it will be a bit clearer next time we ride!
