Its summer here today and I have not seen the horses with their heads up all day!

I have sheep in with them and they still get haylage but I think its time to put the fence up to split the field before the spring grass comes through....

Anyone else in their spring routine yet?

I wish I was! After a brief glimpse of spring I now have them back in medium weight rugs. It is wet, cold and windy here. Not a sign of growth, down to last 5 bales and neighbour lined up for bringing me a couple of big bales. He has cows and calves holed up in every conceivable building on his his large farm - but can't turn any of them out yet, tis far too cold and wet.

Roll on the next few months, hopefully England might just be my last resting place afterall!:redcarded:

It's amazing the difference a spring day makes. The last 2 weeks when I headed over to the field at 0630 the horses have been lined up against the fence begging for hay. Today every one of them was a Flymo.

Can they smell the grass growing?

Grass growing here. Asbo is muzzled 24/7 but looking better for it. They are stripping it back like but it is coming through. Haven't bought hay in for a month

Cracker is in the Punishment Paddock again, :redface: He wriggles through three strands of electric tape and just takes the pain to get to the next door field to eat the new grass. The PP has mains electric, he is livid.
