I got to the yard at 8am, it was already gale force winds and absolutely pouring down with rain! The horses really needed to be turned out for a while, so we put them out. By this time my hair was already dripping wet, my jods were soaked through and my waterproof coat was no longer waterproof!
After a couple of hours, the wind and rain got worse. A couple of horses were starting to get a bit finicky, so we decided to bring them all in. Leading horses in terrential rain and strong winds - not fun!
By this time it was about 2pm, and up until 5pm (finish time) I tried to stay indoors as much as possible By the time I left, I was soaked to the skin, my hair was dripping and I might as well have not worn shoes or a coat LOL
Don't you just love working with horses? And people think it's glamerous, PAH
