rain stopped play

I think it has only stopped raining for 2 or 3 hours out of the last 24 and consequently I relented and brought the boys in tonight. Can't say they seemed grateful but I shall sleep better.

I haven't blogged for a couple of days due to the stormy weather and awful broadband connection but this was yesterday's work in-hand. Actually it's the first 5 minutes before I ran out of battery, I'm useless, lol!! I can't seem to get it onto movie maker to edit so it's all boring stuff except a few seconds from 1 minute where I'm really pleased because the entwickeln (shoulder-in, straight, shoulder-in/leg yield) is much more fluent and I'm especially pleased that we can also control the quarters coming off the track. That really is the power of video evidence, in the absence of regular training I can at least kick my own butt!!

I have lots still to cover on aids/turning but every spare moment is currently invested in paddock topping or painting; hence my brain is full of thought but nothing committed to print.

I'm glad it's not just raining in the UK! Still the grass needs it!

Arrggh no Jane, we have grass in abundance and I just can't keep up with it, I've topped most of the paddocks at least three times now and the hay field looks ready to cut. Bring back the sun!! Pretty please.

Oh and I spoke to Gareth last night, we are arranging an appointment in about 5 weeks...so thanks VERY much.

Oh and Di, I'll take you up on that offer when you're back to 100%, thanks.
