'Gunner' be in trouble

The rain continues unabated, the paddocks are awash with rainwater, the grass gallops are submerged, the schooling grounds have sunk and the all-weather gallops and fibre sand round canter have taken a hammering and, as was pointed out the other day we are ‘apparently’ only ‘two weeks away from Summer’! The horses look tremendous despite the vile weather, it’s not only wet but cold too but, despite this their skins look great and they are all as ‘fresh as paint’.

The yard refuses to look tidy because there are puddles of mud everywhere and although we are all really looking forward to the season ahead there are nevertheless some unhappy (wet) faces while some of us seem to be suffering from a case of S.A.D syndrome, or is that my imagination because I know I am “Gunner” be in trouble soon……………………………………

The hint is in the picture.

Meanwhile long standing owner and friend Ian Farrington sent this marvellous picture depicting horse racing and the often subsequent consequences of getting involved. It is without a doubt a great way to burn fingers but with all the rain water around at least the fire can be extinguished quickly
