Well winter is well and truly upon us and because of the totally unpredictability of it all, outings and training days are on hold.

 

Roll on warm weather I say!  Our paddocks are like swamps and the boys have a lovely coating of mud that seems to grow hourly, no matter how much brushing and grooming one does <sigh>
