26th May, 2017 Hot Footing It

Farrier day for the three riding horses who have had many months off following Théoden's diagnosis of navicular. Hopefully having time without shoes has done them all good but we do have to protect them from the Forest stones. Boots were also an option but we also have very boggy ground which can easily wrench them off. We'll see how we go on. Jack had another full trim and his feet look much tidier for it.

Matching outfits
Afterwards there was time to check Nelly (still no foal!) and to take Jack and Jack-Jack out for a walk in the inclosure. Pleased to say that Nadia is back after her first year at Writtle where she is studying for a degree in Equine Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation.
