Nelly came home today with 'Exmoor' today. Nelly looks pretty good but Exmoor has clearly struggled this winter. It's always a dilemma whether to report poorer ponies, particularly at this time of year when the grass should come through any minute. She gets some hay whenever she comes home with Nelly as we are a long way away from the road and not encouraging her to take food from the hand. She had a rather bald face a couple of months ago but did allow me to give it a little wipe with some very dilute Hibiscrub.
I managed to give Henrietta her first all over groom today if you don't count her right hind and front legs. She remains to be convinced about this grooming thing.
