For the past few weeks I seem to have been spending a lot of my riding time grooming instead. This is the state in which I normally find Galahad these days.
The ground is just so wet everywhere – we can’t escape the mud!
This morning however it was a different story entirely. We had a proper hard frost – definitely the coldest it has been this winter – and everything was transformed. The mud was no longer an issue as I could just walk along on top of it which was lovely. It was a simply beautiful morning.
I realise that the cold brings problems of its own but I am always very appreciative of this weather. It isn’t wet for one thing! Again – everything looks so lovely it is hard not to feel uplifted.
Plus, hopefully the ponies won’t get so muddy!
