Despite big black thunderclouds Pat, Tracey and I had a lovely ride out this afternoon. There was a family gathering before we got ready. We came back across Janesmoor Plain following the Alaska digger up the track. We always like to use our environment to train the horses.
Whilst giving the Alaskan men a shout for being so pleasant, I should include the vet, Helen Taylor, who not only did a great job with Zoe but was very sweet-tempered about being imprisoned! It was a good week for pleasant people and I should never forget just how lucky I am to be surrounded by such kind and willing helpers, Tracey, Julie and lately, Nadia.
We finished the day by applying the last new poultice to Zoe's foot. She seems to have taken the advice about soaking her feet in iodine to heart and is taking preventive measures with her other foot.
