A write-off

As expected, today was very wet and nasty. Other Dad came early and topped up our haylage. Dad returned at 11.00 and started on Dibby's stable whilst Dibby stood outside with his net and I remained in my stable with mine. We went out to graze at noon and the rain continued unabated.

By the time Dad came back at 2.30 We were both completely soaked and standing in the deep mud by the gate asking to come in. Dad had to wash our legs as well as our hooves because we were so muddy, but had some towels to dry us down. He groomed us and put us in our stable early -well within the permitted turn-out time. Tea hadn't been prepared yet so Other Dad came down at 4.45 to feed us. We were glad to have some exercise yesterday. Cobs think there are some days you just write-off.
