Just an update, we did end up getting a load of DG and it is SO much better. It really didn't take much to put a nice layer down. We haven't had any intense rain so far, but it has rained some and the paddock is mostly dry within a day whereas before it would take 1-2 weeks or more for it to stop being a slick muck.

The problem with clay is there is no organic matter in to let water in it packs so tight that water just runs off. How about putting some organic matter in the soil say maybe sawdust and as it brakes down add more this should start to loosen the soil up after some time. Just me thoughts take as you like.
