Update on the rehab horses
Solomon is unperturbed by the filthy weather - he just does the sensible thing and carries on eating haylage no matter how much the wind howls and the rain lashes on the barn roof. He is rather taken with Isha, but at the moment is having to bide his time as she is too taken up with Felix and Angel to pay him much attention! He is in consistent work now and it seems to be suiting him, which is great.
Kingsley is another who is impervious to our dire November weather - I worked him yesterday as it was getting dark, in the teeth of the gales, and he was a little star. He has a lovely get-on-with-it attitude, and positively relishes being out and about, but his weakness on a circle - where he struggles to trot particularly on the right rein - is only slowly improving.
I have found it very difficult to get photos and video footage this week, partly because of the weather and partly because I've been short of extra hands to film or lead for me, but I will definitely try to rectify that next week.
