Minty lining

Unusually for a Monday, we were given the day off. We went out early to graze and, whilst Dad was attending to out stables, it was dry and sunny. As soon as he had finished and wanted to ride, it started to rain heavily and, being a fair-weather rider, he gave up.

Liz was scheduled to give two group lessons this evening, but Dibby can't participate just now due to his hock and Dad thinks I am a bit too fast in the trot for some of the mares that are now in the first session, so we opted out. It's a shame since we both enjoy the group lessons and it's good exercise. Hopefully, we may be able to arrange a private lesson before too long. Dad wants to ride tomorrow morning, so no doubt the heavens will open again.

Anyway, we made the most of it and came in to be thoroughly groomed and given tea. Cobs believe that every dark cloud has a minty lining.
