We all have a lot on our plate at the moment. Much to think about.
It is family stuff so, as it was raining, I went for a drive.
I needed to get some perspective and do some thinking.
I have my favourite route so I put the windows down, the heater on full blast and stopped occasionally to take photos of the beautiful, if soggy, Shetland scenery, flora and fauna.
Yay, to th oystercatchers – there just isn’t much sign of Spring and they usually bring it with them. Perhaps they’ve made a serious misjudgement coming home.
When it is persisting down, there is a limit to how much time I can spend with my animals outside. I only have so many waterproofs.
Obviously we feed the horses and ponies but riding a soggy horse, even in an indoor school, is a miserable affair and very uninspiring.
So that would be my riding mojo – it made a brief appearance – now floating away.
I enjoyed my drive. It was peaceful and I got some thinking done.
I found two Eriskay ponies eating hay.
I think they are rather special.
And then I wended my way home.
This is my soggy lot. I really feel for them but it’s not that cold and they are eating huge piles of silage twice a day.
Apparently it might stop raining next week.
