After a week of high pressure and blue skies, we've got autumn with a vengeance now, with the wind howling outside and all horses refusing to leave the shelter of the barn and ad lib haylage :-)

Good news from the weekend that Angel seems to have overcome his cow phobia! Sam took him for a long blast out on Sunday and was charged by a whole herd of steers, which would have been enough to put him into a blind panic when he first arrived, but he coped really well and she was very impressed with him. I thought he might be a bit tired after his 2 days hunting last week but apparently he was feeling very fit and well and certainly when I long-reined him yesterday he gave me the impression that he was ready for anything(!)
