MORE snow. It wasn't quite as windy as last time and the drifts weren't as big, but it was still a fair dump. Thank goodness we can turn all the horses out so that they can play in the snow. They still get plenty of exercise even if they can't be ridden. The difficulty is getting them to drink enough water, as they don't drink so much when it is really cold. You then have to be careful not to work them too hard as if they lose fluids sweating, but don't drink enough you can get all sorts of problems with tying up or colic.
I have to say it was rather nice having time off from racing, fire lit and a roast lunch, although I am raring to go for next weekend now.
