Rainy day off

We awoke to rain and wind this morning. Other Dad put us out to graze before 9.00. For the most part the day was quiet. At one point Connie started to run around which set Dibby, Cricket and me off plus Bailey, Tom and Little Bailey in the next field. Dibby joined in, squealing and bucking very effectively as he charged around. We all like a good hool when it's getting cooler.

We came in at 4.00. Helpfully, the wash box was occupied and Dad tidied our feet up as best he could. In retrospect he wasn't too unhappy since, in an effort to avoid mud fever, he's trying not to wet our legs this winter unless essential. So he picked our feet out, brushed the mud off and applied Tecsin to ward off thrush. Then it was grooming, rugging up and tea. For cobs rainy days have their advantages.
