I'm sure that Tenor and Tilly will have learnt how to swim by the end of the month, so I'm thinking of blue trunks for Tenor and a red swim suit for Tilly lol ! Tonights hack was mostly through water,one of the lanes was totally flooded and the ditches are now brimming over. I'm actually getting used to it now !! One dry day would be a nice treat though.

 its a nightmare! its actually quite depressing, the ponies are out 24/7 atm though, but the field isnt too bad, but its definetly getting my mood down, i dont think iv managed to ride for around 2/3 weeks! all the tracks around here are down hill to get to flat and its just far to dangerous, and iv seen far to many horses fall over down them when its wet. :(

The skid marks our horses make in the field which has a steep slope at one end, and funny at times as you just see a a pair of ears moving along the brow of the hill, the fields luckily drain quite well but nearby is a canal also a stream so MIDGES so have to use alot of fly repellant. Getting to the horses can be quite fun because of the puddles or shall I say small lakes. The horses get fed up even with all this rain even if there is plenty of grass as they stand by the gate waiting to brought in, then the way Sabrina lifts her one leg while diving into her Soft and Soak cannot wait for me to remove her headcollar or turnout rug, thats the other problem cannot get the chance to dry the turnout rugs overnight that is unless you have the use of a heated drying room.

We've had a fair amount more rain, but I think it's sinking into the ground at long last rather than running off.

We're supposed to have sun all day today, tomorrow and Sunday, but I haven't actually seen it yet, it still looks very grey and as if it was about to rain again....

I think I'm the same as igglepop, matching swim gear ? Blue probably - or would Tenor prefer some of those baggy shorts with pictures of palm trees on??!!

We have actually had a few dry days thankfully. The field has started to dry out and the ducks are no longer swimming in them. I have had to get the horses a round bale of hay so they have something to eat in the field as i can't put them in the next field or i wont have any grass left at all as i already have 2 trashed paddocks.

Hope your field dries out soon so Tenor and Tilly can stop wading and not have to resort to swimming around the field. Loving the idea of Tenor wearing paggy swim shorts with palm trees on .
