Plus 3 and dry when driving in.
By dry I mean it is not raining .. yet.
The snow is melting and the trees are happier as most of that awful white stuff has fallen off their branches, allowing them to bend back again…. Its a bit like an old man straightening himself after many hours in the wrong position..some sadly will not be straight again.. bent for ever.
This sort of weather puts us in a dilemma as we are most unlikely to be able to canter the horses this morning.
Our two all weather gallops still have at least 7 inches of snow on them and although it is melting, cantering on the snow is dangerous when it starts to thaw as it balls in their feet and like us they can twist joints or ankles (for the human analogy)
We might be ok this afternoon?..
Yes all that snow makes for good pictures but once the thaw comes it is not pretty..
Anyway Jockey David Bass was in for a while.. his cheery humour kept all the staff happy while riding out..Trotting around our school area.
I shall be making a rare appearance at Kempton later .. Archie needs dropping off at Heathrow at 5 as he is heading off to Dubai on a 10 day ECB sponsored cricket tour... Lucky chap..
Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates
'In honor of this holy season' Saint Peter said, 'You must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.'
The man from England fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. 'It represents a candle', he said.
'You may pass through the pearly gates' Saint Peter said.
The man from Scotland reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, 'They're bells.'
Saint Peter said 'You may pass through the pearly gates'.
The Irishman started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of women's panties.
St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, 'And just what do those symbolize?'
The Irishman replied, 'These are Carols.'
And So The Christmas Season Begins......
