The horses are spending most of the day in the hay fields at the moment. They come up for hay and feed morning and evening and then wend their way back down. The hay fields—as the name suggests—are usually left fallow for hay and the horses are not permitted to graze there. However the grass was still quite long there by the time the snow arrived and they are finding a lot of grazing by scraping away the snow.
Dee glanced at us as she splashed through the stream, but galloped up the field with the rest of them. We then plodded back up the fields through the snow. Dee was waiting for us by the arena. The expression on her face seemed to say 'what took you so long?'
We have had an unusual amount of snow in Wales this month. It has stuck around for two weeks.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you a healthy and happy 2011.
