It is truly vile out there. So cold, wet and windy.
We are all hating it.
Efstur’s second new rug has arrived this afternoon so we will be trying it on him tomorrow. I went up a size when I ordered it but it is a different make so it could be anyone’s guess whether it fits or not. The science of horse rug measuring remains a mystery to me. I think it is more chaos theory really than actual mathematically acknowledged measurements.
We are trying to keep our heads above water and everyone is on two meals a day of silage apart. I did not see any shivering and the horses and ponies are clever at finding the best place for shelter.
The hens are laying, though, so they must know something I don’t. I had to use my hat to collect today’s eggs. Don’t worry, I didn’t let them lay in it, though it does look like a good nest.
