not put the horses out, the wind was too much to be messing about with doors. Skipped out, threw hay at them topped up water.....

We've only got up to 50mph winds here and that's enough for me, I hope you come through with everything and everyone unscathed :)

Don't envy you Wally, the wind here almost blew me of my feet this morning and we've got nothing like yours. Stay safe all of you.

OH who is a weather buff wondered about you at breakfast. From wonderful civilised london where phone and central heating both on the blink and we are both unfit to ride.. It would raise his morale if you were able to provide updates.

Do you bring all yours in when the winds are high @Wally? I'm just wondering as I am generally of the opinion to leave the neds out so they can find themselves a safe spot and shift at speed if needs be, we don't have half as bad winds as you do though. What swayed me was years ago a yard I rode at in Cornwall brought all the horses in their stables during a storm and the roof of the barn came in, among others the owners top jumping horse was horrifically injured and he swore he wouldn't bring horses in during a storm again as all those outside were unfazed.

It's 6 and two threes, We have had barn roofs go with animals in, and they were OK, but if the roof blows and hits them while they are out.....but then a valuable bull was lost in the next village because the barn wall fell on him. You pays yer money and takes a chance. I have left mine in as opening doors in this is just too dangerous

5.30 and it's just beginning to moderate,

Horses stayed in all day, Just been over and topped up water and refill hay supply. Few fish boxes blown about and a couple of 40 gallon drums I use for rain water blown a bit, apart from that no damage to buildings. It was such a luxury to be able to stand in my new feed shed filling haynet while hurricane force winds blustered about outside, then walk the 10 fee across the yard. Last year it was haylage in big round bales . It would have been impossible to get the wheelbarrow of haylage to the shed today,

105mph winds. all flippin afternoon, exhausting.

I hope everything continued to settle down and nothing went awry overnight? I saw the 105mph winds for Lerwick on the news and thought of you guys @Frances144 I hope you are faring okay too, and our other Shetland member who I can't place name and location at the moment?
