Will they last

Our snow arrived as forecast this afternoon, and this evening we now have a couple of inches on the ground. So much for snowdrops being a sign of Spring.

We have been doing a spot of halter training today, as you may recall from a previous blog, Midnight Star was rather wild. Today she was slightly better, however she did provide one of our neighbours with a rather impressive show bucking and throwing herself into the air and onto the floor.

She did eventually manage to stand nice and calmly, walking was out of the question today but we will persevere, as the saying goes "if at first you don't succeed try try again". Tenzing was top of the class, he walked like a very good boy.

Paul has been stacking logs, he was hoping that they would be in readiness for next year however it is looking like they may be needed for this year!

He is off work next week which will be nice, we are (fingers crossed) heading off to the Futurity later in the week. My parents are booked in for animal sitting but sadly my nanna has had a stroke in the last few days which is a real worry for us all, especially my mum. So get well soon Nanna.

We hope your Nana recovers soon, a big worry.
We've given up all hope of halter training at the moment - no snow but lots of rain and therefore mud!
