Summer coat

Dee has her proper summer colour for the first time in three years.  She is a dark bay in her winter coat, but much lighter—almost chestnut—in her summer coat.  The summers in Wales for the last two years have been so wet and cool that she never really fully lost her winter colour.  It is great to see her looking so sleek and chestnut.

She seems happy to see us – but not really interested.  She will accept treats but soon returns to grazing – clearly a contented mare.

We looked around for him, but did not see Red this visit.  Hopefully we will see him next time.
