#1 here, hijacking the blog as threatened... Let's be honest, the weather has been every kind of stinky so far, and more rain is forecast for today, although we're not sure just how much.
So, why thankful? Well, yesterday was vert check day and al of our horses passed with flying colours. The vehicles were also all checked to make sure they are up to scratch and the right weight, and all was good on that front too. I am still hobbling about and my kneed survived the considerably increased activity in relatively good shape. Our team leader is a nurse, and she keeps telling me to walk "properly" instead of doing only passable imitations of John Cleese. I'm trying.
Anyway, here are a few our horses, for your viewing pleasure. First off, Robert Sampson leading stallion Willingham Axl and Axl's partner (wife..) Crystal to their vet check. They share a field back home and Crystal is expecting his foal.
Three of our four Shires. One pair is driven by a young man who will soon be starting university/college and the other pair by his younger sister who is still in high school The photos was taken during one of the brief moments of sunshine.

Four Percheron girls out for a spin in the rain. I cannot even begin to describe to you how wet we were when we got back...
Oh, and for some reason, Genji thought you might be thankful for this shot of him having a bath...
