Oh my god its cold!!!!!

Not really complaining but it really is cold here today, that is preferable to last winter where is was mild, wet and seriously grotty, at least this feels "clean."

All the retired horses are still out in the back field thanks to Andrew providing us with fabulous haylage this year and Chris lending us his tractor once a week to pop two bales out (the back field is beyond Layla the Leyland - she's a yard tractor!!!) 

All the old boys have rugs on now but unfortunately Hectors resembled a Tutu - and a squint one at that.  So quick splash out on Ebay and Hector is a much happier horse, cosy from his ears to his tail and just so his colour!!!  

Mule and Ellie are unrugged, mule to try and slim her down for the spring (Mule wonders of the ethics of this!!) and Ellie because the mare is just thriving... she's due in May - can we see a bump yet?
