Prefer to listen to this post?
I know you haven’t heard from me in a while so I just thought I would let all my lovely fans know that your favourite thoroughbred is still here! Despite the gale force winds, torrential rain, heavy snow and literally freezing temperatures!
Unlike some of the lucky horses out there, my mum doesn’t believe that the change in weather should mean a huge change to our routine. In the past few months I have seen all the weather Britain has to offer, even if only for a few hours at a time! I baked in the warm sun in October, was pelted in rain in November, braved the snow in December and so far this year I have had the joys of rain, snow and wind!
Now don’t get me wrong, if it’s truly horrid we usually stay in or just stretch our legs for a few hours. But me and Jojo tend to be out in most conditions, while our buddies spend the day in their warm stables with a large haynet. This would be a very good time to remind mum that the grass is starting to look a bit bare out there… and a bigger haynet would be much less effort than having to move around the field looking for the tastiest grass!
To top it all off, after a day inside due to some horrible winds, when I returned to my field I was greeted by half of a tree laying on the floor. This was quite worrying as whatever killed that big beast could certainly have a good pop at me!
As much as I have moaned about the horrible British weather today, I would be lying if I said I would rather stay in the stable. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to stay in every now and then. But rolling in a big soft bed just isn’t the same as rolling in the mud! I really miss my relaxing rolls in the mud.
