Weve had what must be 3 months worth of rain in the last 4 days. The fields are waterloggered and where they are not waterlogged they are now just piles of sloshy mud.
Even my hardcore shetland who normally wont let me catch her prefers to stay out is waiting at the gate to be brought in at night.
I cant take the DSs on the route we normally go for a hack because there is a giant lake .. an actual lake which is deeper than my bloody wellies .. so unless im willing to walk around with water in my shoes I have to take them the way of the giant fuck off hill.
Yep i agree HATE it, i hate the mud it causes! im convinced they spot me coming and fling themselves in it. when their led up the track im sure they bring their feet down extra hard to splatter my back and get it in my wellies...
Our farmer thoughtfully put the field shelters at the bottom of the hill, so I've been digging ditches to try and channel the water away and stop it running in. Has worked so far, the floors are dry, but I got soaked to the skin while dhorse watched me from inside . Oh this was after I'd stood at the top of the field in driving rain to fix the fence he'd trashed earlier grrr! At least it's quite warm so we haven't had wet rugs to deal with yet, and strangely none of the horses has rolled so no caked on mud.
