So what to do about DiDi? Well I put her out at around 9.00 am this morning wearing her underblanket and her raincoat. Once free from the halter she mooched around the field, which is all soft and churned up. She then took up position by the gate. I dropped a pat of hay down by the gate and left her. When I went back at 4.00 pm, she was pretty much standing where I had left her - except that she was covered in mud. She had gone somewhere at sometime and rolled. It had rained a little during the day and the outer coat was still damp.
I led her in to her stable and gave her tea. She made no objection and quickly buried her head in the feed bucket. I felt under the under coat - she was warm.
Tomorrow is another day. I wonder what will come?
