Too wet a winter

It's been difficult to think of anything to blog about other than the abject misery of mud caused by the seemingly never ending precipitation in one form or another. It's heartbreaking seeing your animals in such conditions knowing that there's little you can do to make life more comfortable for them than to keep their bellies full. At the moment there doesn't seem to be any light on the horizon with another mainly wet week forecast. If this is what we're facing with climate change British horse owners are going to have to learn new ways of management.

Times are going to be tough even when the weather improves, there's a forage shortage now meaning rising prices (if you can find any to buy), fields will need repair as will fencing. Some of our fence posts are rotting in the water logged conditions.

See why I haven't wanted to blog? I really don't want to moan & whine all the time!

"Don't let the incidents which take place in life bring you low. And certainly don't whine. You can be brought low, that's OK, but don't be reduced by them. Just say, "That's life." Maya Angelou

Anyway Eggsy & I have much to be grateful for, your help spreading his story and your financial assistance which has been an absolute godsend with the rising price of forage. I honestly don't know how we'd manage without you.

We have some overdue thank you's for Christine, Philo, Nancy, Norma, Emily, Elizabeth and our anonymous friends it's your generosity that has got Eggsy through these last few weeks. 

"If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded." Maya Angelou

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.
