Spring may or may not have finally arrived (although I thought I saw snow this morning).
All the horses and ponies immediately galloped down to the bottom field for the new grass this morning after their breakfast.
The ground is still very wet and every time I think the mud is drying up, we have a torrential downpour and go quickly back to square one.
On a good note, though, I saw my first wild primrose flower. They grow on either side of the stream in huge banks and their arrival shows me there is a way forward out of Winter.
I know the ponies are getting under one of the fences but I was not sure where until I went down to the bottom of the field. I am not surprised but a little disappointed they took advantage after the floods. One fence to mend.
The gap is only 2 foot high! Do they crawl on their knees?
I enjoyed pottering around the fields. It was nice to be outside but there is another gale on its way tonight. Here we go again.
But I am very relieved to see the grass finally trying to make an appearance. I was getting to that point when I start to think nothing will ever grow again.
BeAnne was on fine form too and went swimming. She is a very keen swimmer any time of the year.
