Eggsy's January

So here we are the last day of January 2018 and what a month it has been!

It's mostly been about weather some days have been so cold that the ice on the water has been re-freezing as soon as it's been cleared. So cold that I've been wearing two coats. 

So cold that lots of extra feed has been given.

Other days it's been so warm that I've been working in a t shirt, although those days they have been few and far between. But mostly it's been rain, rain and more rain with some of the highest rainfall in years.

The land is saturated, our track down to the horses is impassable in a vehicle, I had to be towed out back in December,  which means I have to carry all their forage, hard feed and water down to them by hand. Can't even use a barrow in this mud. Walking in mud is exhausting, carrying heavy feed stuffs and containers of water is exhausting. 

I'm really rather tired. 

Eggsy and friends are weathering the weather with their usual cheerful demeanor's. Always delighted to see the arrival of more food and what a lot of food they're getting though. So Eggsy and I are even more grateful than usual, if that's possible, for the help purchasing feed via your donations

Thank you Elizabeth and our anonymous friend for your January donations they have helped keep Eggsy warm this month, forage being central heating for horses. 

It's hailing now, great big lumps of ice falling from the sky - more "central heating" required! 

About Eggsy:

Eggsy is a rescue pony he was abandoned and left to starve by his owners as a foal. His care is funded by donations.

Would you like to help Eggsy? 

Eggsy has a GoFundMe campaign to help raise funds for his care, we'd be really grateful if you'd go take a look, share it far and wide via your social media and of course if you can spare some money please donate.
