Icy!!!

We are never happy are we?

First too wet, now too cold/frozen as I watched my horses trying to break the ice on our moat, which is where they drink from on the whole. They first used their muzzles then used their hoof. It took a few attempts but they managed it. At this time of year we feed hay and hard feed. I do soak their hard feed (cereal) but the hay, of course is very dry so they do need lots of water. One of my sons went down this evening to break up lots of ice to ensure they can get at the water with ease.

My eldest was supposed to be show jumping this evening but weather has stopped play as even on a prepared surface it is too hard/frozen and dangerous for both horse and rider.

Spring is on it's way :)
