Oooops, I have just realised I didn't do an update and let you know that racing was also cancelled on the Sunday due to waterlogging, so we had the whole weekend to catch up on other things, which was rather nice.
The weather has been absolutely foul until today when there was this strange yellow ball in the sky, and suddenly everything looked completely different. The ground is still very soggy but drying out a little. We are holding the horses off now until next weekend, when we are definitely taking Popaway and Top Garry to Garthorpe, and maybe Beech Hill depending on how she and Hannah school on Monday and we are also possibly going to the rescheduled meeting at Barbury on the Saturday with Tik and Jess, once again depending on the ground. We haven't got a soft ground horse this season so we are very much looking forward to the ground drying out.
After working the horses tomorrow, we are going to Sandown to watch 'our boys' in the Royal Artillery Gold cup. 'Our boys' are our past and present novice riders, Harry Wallace, Billy Aprahamian and Nathan Rahman. I don't mind who wins as long as it is one of them! Kick on Boys! and of course, come home safely.
