Schooling again

The morning was very wet and we were put out to graze. Dad came to attend to our stables before noon and brought us in shortly after 1.00. We spent the afternoon in our stables and Dad came back at 4.00 and took me in the school. We practised in walk trot and canter and did some lateral exercises and worked long and low. Dad was quite pleased that I was moving forward off the leg and was responsive. If the weather permits, we will school again tomorow and have a lesson on Sunday morning.

We came in when it was growing dark. I had an apple and some minties and was given tea with extra carrots and apples. Even though it’s rather a shock to the system, cobs don’t mind working after a lay-off.
