The unspoiled world of senior cobs, David and Master Dibble

An interesting day - warm and dry again. Dad took me in the school mid-morning. Dibby joined us and we walked around together on both reins for a while and then Other Dad took him down the road for a short hack .We continued in the school with some lateral work and turns about the forehand. We ran through Prelim 1 a few times but I wasn't really going forward or round enough and Dad was somewhat disappointed.

When we came out we found the field in which we usually graze had been sectioned off with tape to accommodate two of the mares who have been kicked by other mares. We went in the remainder of the field and minded our own business. One of our water buckets had been removed but Dad got another from Sally and filled them both up so we were fine on a hot day. Dibby wore his muzzle and I my fly mask and we stayed out until 4.30 or so.

We came in for grooming and tea and Dad took some snaps of us in our stables. Cobs are quite photogenic.
