That was last night.
is it that he's bored with it? not as if he's there all the time...
is the footing? wouldn't surprise me.
anyway, was a total waste of time, really ...
tonight i had to go to mother's unexpectedley.
tomorrow, i shall try going out again ... and the other good thing (for him, anyway) is they move to another field with enough grass to sink a battleship - the one they're in gets rested and then presumably in a month or so we all move to winter fields (not that our winter field has been rested, it currently is divided in two with mares in one half and the "mixed herd" of 6 in the other half...would like to think it will get a small break, at least)
the new field is not good for us owners, though, as it's a further up the hill, and you can guarantee that they won't want to come in!
