I do not know about raincoats and wellies - I am sure I am growing webbed feet.

It has been terrible. Hard scalping tracks have a fungus growing on them, we have springs appearing where there never has been before - and we are on the side of a hill!

No grass cut for hay or haylage. Get a few hours when it isn't raining and you think it is going to get better then it rains again.

So much for the early forecast of a total hosepipe ban throughout the UK.

Dairy farmers are keeping their herds in overnight. Seems that the warmer than average sunny weather we had in March was out summer.

It has hit everything, apples are way less this year because of a cold April and the bees not pollenating the flowers. The cold snap - bitter winds, stopped much growing. Now a lot is either being washed out or rotted.

I spent at least an hour just dead heading the roses. They are rotting as they grow.

However, given the heats on that side of the pond I think I will sit it out here!

It sounds as if you are at the opposite extreme from some of us. Too much rain and no summer vs. no rain and extreme heat. Anybody know when this cycle of extreme weather conditions is predicted to end?

Rode this weekend on a trail ride, residual free rides from a feeding stint I did at a local trail riding stable.
How exciting for you! Can't wait to hear how it goes!

You may like to comment if you have not read, my tongue in cheek instructions on dealing with the injury on Stellas hind leg on page 399

I have a few other devices to put on Stella, photograph and comment on. Ill look at doing that this coming weekend.

In the meantime I will post a little ditty for general entertainment

A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife.



She was a very good-looking woman and determined to keep the ranch, but knew very little about ranching, so she decided to place an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand.




Two cowboys applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk.




She thought long and hard about it, and when no one else applied she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around the house than the drunk



He proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching.



For weeks, the two of them worked, and the ranch was doing very well.




Then one day, the rancher's widow said to the hired hand, "You have done a really good job, and the ranch looks great. You should go into town and kick up your heels." The hired hand readily agreed and went into town one Saturday night.



One o'clock came, however, and he didn't return.



Two o'clock and no hired hand.



Finally he returned a round two-thirty, and upon entering the room, he found the rancher's widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him.



She quietly called him over to her..



"Unbutton my blouse and take it off," she said.



Trembling, he did as she directed. "Now take off my boots."



He did as she asked, ever so slowly.. "Now take off my socks."



He removed each gently and placed them neatly by her boots.




"Now take off my skirt."




He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the fire light.






"Now take off my bra.." Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was told and dropped it to the floor.






Then she looked at him and said, "If you ever wear my clothes into town again, you're fired."
