Clip and diet

A dull and drizzly day after the recent fine weather. Claire came to give us a full clip at 10.00. She came with Sally, the dog. Dibby was clipped first. Dad then brushed him and sponged him down with warm warm water since it wasn't warm enough for a bath. He then went out to graze with Cricket whilst Claire clippped me. We both behaved well with some fidgets when our heads were done.

After less than four hours we came in at 3.45 for grooming and tea. Claire said Dibby was too plump which increased Other Dad's determination to help him lose some weight by cutting down his haylage. Dibby won't like dieting, even though it's in his best interest. Never come between a cob and his haylage.
