Its the 4th Feb and really very cold. They say that it might snow this evening. The dogs are curled up infront of the wood burner and I havent ridden since Wednesday. The ground is rock hard and there is just no pleasure sitting on a horse when you are so bundled up against the elements. The sheep are fine if a little footy. We do not seem to be able to fully recover from the foot rot we have had. Need to work out when they are due to lamb and get a date in the diary for their pre lambing booster vaccination.
