Thankfully Jess isn't a rug wrecker, and the little boys don't wear them as a rule. I spent many hours fixing bo's rugs so know how it feels, I don't miss it :p

Well I was given a fly sheet at the weekend. I put it on in the morning one day this week. When I went to get the boys in that evening it had a large rip down the bottom. So didn't even last a day. Fortunately it had a couple of snags anyway which was why it was given to me but even so. Our animals are so ungrateful.
So I now have two fly sheets awaiting repair. Oh and a rain sheet from the winter. One day I shall go mad and repair them all. I have to be in the mood to get the needle and thread out.

My excuse for not liking needle and thread is that about five years ago I developed an awful septic infection in my finger after accidentally stabbing the end of it with the blunt end of the needle :oops::eek:I had no idea at the time that even though initially painful as a sharp stab - just how awful it was going to turn out:eek:

Both Madam's (new this season) fly rugs are much mended at this stage - as we've had rain most days for the last 2 weeks she hasn't needed them luckily.
I'm going to invest in an Aussie one next year I think - very disappointed with the Amigo ones :(
