Old Field : New Field

Another whole day spent electric fencing - dismantling from one field, taking the eyelets out around the whole perimeter,  and re-erecting in another field, plus putting up a temporary paddock to put our two in while they get acquainted with the other field residents.  It was hard work but worth it.  OH came with us which was a great help, although he broke the drill attachment on only the second eyelet!   

Old field:-
This is unusually dry - there's usually a massive lake here!

The quagmire formally known as our 'field'

Ahh dry land ye old landlubbers!

New Field:-

This will be our new field.  The electric paddock is just a temporary measure for a week or so.  The absolute bliss of walking into the field without fearing that your boots will be sucked off your feet by the mud, not to mention the sticky mud all up the horses legs.  And, I have a horse with four feathery white socks!

So, that was Saturday.  On Sunday I actually got to ride!  Hang out the flags and rejoice!  No, maybe not, it was blowing a gale all weekend so not the best of weather to ride when you're on the nervous side.  Still I just had 10 minutes in the menage and Santana was fab!

What a gorgeous boy!
