You know about my obsession with the weather. These days it is really all I can talk about – that, and Lambie of course. I can bore for Britain about him.
Anywho, the wind has been blowing for quite a few days now, enough to dry up all the mud and the days are warming up.
We are still feeding the chaps twice a day as the grass, although it is trying, it is not trying hard enough.
Every morning Haakon and Iacs stand about looking like a spare p**** at a wedding. They have refused point-blank to eat the silage we put out so they come out of the field and have a haynet each to themselves.
They then spend the day in the yard that surrounds the house grazing with free access to hay as well. Yes, I am indulging them but they are both old men (like Statler and Waldorf, they have opinions and watch everyone who comes and goes) and I think they deserve a bit of spoiling. They go out with the lads at night so I am not that nice.
Winter coats are falling out and if ridden, brushed out too.
And now I want some rain to kick start the proper grass. It would be helpful.
And then hopefully everyone will stop needing the extra hay and/or silage.
I am very pleased it is getting warmer now. My thermals have almost been packed away. Almost…… I don’t want to peak too early.
