I do not think that Belle needs much more weight, She is unfit and when you start riding her she will begin to muscle up and look better for it.
Come this time of the year my horses are very fit after a seasons hunting. Most people would call them thin as you can feel their ribs and see the back ones. They are well muscled though.
I dislike fat horses, have dealt with to many problems with them from it!
Running late today, over slept not like me at all.
Back to gardening - weather is dry (ish) the odd shower but not the heavy rain. Spent yesterday digging and planting. Have three beds to dig over. Stuff I planted earlier is barely showing and as there could still be frosts most is still in the greenhouses.
I am no real gardener although I have dabbled for a long time. When I am not sure about the veggies, I call the old boy, Ron, who worked here for years. He puts me right. He is a wonderful man, still comes up here twice a day although he is not well enough to actually work. He doesn't miss much, but that is good because he did so much up until last yea. He wanders around and then might say to me - the ditch is not flowing well, needs clearing.
Better go and get on, pups are 'singing', all out of tune unfortunately.
