Riding Plans or keeping Flurry fit plans!

People have been very good offering to ride Flurry and keep him fit for Martine, so on Saturday Jenny tacked him up and off we went. Jenny is a good rider and had no trouble with him, although he was slipping quite badly with the wraps on his hind feet.

He did a massive shy going through the field beside the road, and Gigi was a bit unsettled , both horses staring fixedly at the hedge, another shy from Flurry, but Jen had him well under control and we continued on our merry way unable to see or hear any reason for their concern.

We kept the hack short, in respect for their bare feet, which was as well as Gigi's front right boot was twisting again, and after about 20 minutes we turned around, and came back on the road, where we discovered the reason for their earlier concern, the flock of sheep and goats were just the other side of the road being moved along by the shepherd. They both had a good look at this strange Provencal phenomenon but moved forward well enough with a bit encouragement, they are definitely getting used to them! No photos I'm afraid as Martine is usually the photographer, must try harder next time!

George was to ride early this morning, 8:30 (groan) but when I checked the forecast yesterday it was giving sub zero temperatures for this am, so we called it off, I was very unwilling to struggle with booting them up wearing no gloves, with frozen fingers. The task is difficult enough at the best of times.

And I was met by a light dusting of snow when I went up to feed them at 9:30

Normally they get grass hay in the morning but this morning I could only find lucerne hay, which they love, so that's what they got!

Gigi is always slow to eat her hard feed as she savours every last bit, while the others tuck into the hay
