Thank you, Duke*
[*The wellington story]
Work: AM heat therapy/very short walk, albeit with bouncy dog. Walked over schooling logs as a sop to me.
PM groom/ground ex [turning box, plank]. It’s shaping up to be an easy week, so why push it? Although on the way out of the ring, I asked him for an in-hand jump over the tiny upright logs. Just because.
More rain last night. Squish. VOE: Not all tall, green, rubber boots are Wellies, no matter how they are advertised. The field mark is the red-rimmed label on the upper front of the leg that says HUNTER. After finally forking out for the real thing, I found out why an entire nation goes nuts over these boots. They are waterproof (of course), sturdy (a pleasant surprise), and comfortable (a great surprise). I can go for a long mare walk without feeling as if I have done so barefoot. When we have had a run of mud, I will often find myself still wearing them days after the mud has gone. They are that easy on the feet. Now, if I could only do something about the mare’s mud-pack, spa treatments.
How do you stay dry in the wet?
