Another warm day. Dad rode me in the school in my saffle whilst Other Dad schooled Dibbs. We worked in walk, trot and canter with some halt transitions and lateral exercises. By the time we finished, we were all hot and bothered and Dibbs and I enjoyed a cool hose down before being put out to graze.
Although it was hot and sunny, there was a pleasant breeze and so we were left out until 5.00. We were given a good groom and our teas. Dad says the coming wek should see even higher temperatures. Funny how the summer heat has been so much of an issue this year. The hard ground seems the most damaging it's ever been. Fortunately it's not up to Dibbs and me to come up with answers to such difficult concerns; cobs have limited understanding of the issues behind global warming.
