We have had some snow! It started during my walk yesterday morning (Matt stayed at home to look after Brodie as he is still having a pancreatitis flare up. By the time I got back with the other three it was snowing quite heavily and Toad enjoyed a potter in the garden!

The weather has continued to be appalling over week 2 of lockdown. We have had a lot of flooding locally and our garden is very squelchy! To be fair I wouldn't have been working anyway so at least I'm not having the stress of cancelling and constantly rearranging lessons...silver lining! As a result we have done a lot of pavement walks over the weekend as Bru's nail is still healing and Toad is still not going too far due to his pancreatitis. He is on the mend but it is slow progress!
Its hard to see properly but this road became a river and they had to bring a fire service boat out to sort it as they couldn't get the fire engine through!
We also had some snow this weekend, just a sprinkling but it was nicer than rain! I would quite like some proper snow, for the first time in years I could enjoy it as I'm not working or trying to do horses. Toad was the sweetest, he did a double take and then went running up the garden!
And as I couldn't resist here are a couple of photos of the boys on the bed having cuddles! Brodie 💙

So the first week of lockdown is over and it has been tougher than last time, I think mainly due to the weather and not being able to spend time in the garden doing jobs without freezing! At the moment we have Brodie having a pancreatitis flare up which involves lots of going in the bath and sleepless nights, Bru has a split nail high up and is fed up of not running around or being able to lick it, Spark pulled up lame at the weekend after running for no apparent reason so Brooke is the only one currently not broken! Typically I was just starting to get stuck into some conditioning work with them and wanted to do some garden agility exercises with the younger two! I'm sure they will all be better at some point but it is a bit frustrating.
