It's Raining - good for the grass

Yeah - it is finally raining, & not just a drizzle. Means we won't be riding this afternoon, but we really need the rain as the paddocks are low & the 2 we had closed off to recuperate have just been sitting there waiting for rain. I think we will move the horses into here for a couple of weeks anyway to give their current paddock a rest. They haven't lost any condition, the 2 thoroughbreds are the ones to watch, the other 3 run on the smell of an oily rag. We are currently giving them hard feed at night but not a lot. The weight lifter mix is brilliant at keeping weight on, you just have to find the balance of not giving them so much that they get all hyper & silly.
