Another wet night and dull, damp and dark this morning, due to improve but its been a wet spell up and down the country and reports from the Angus and Perthshire glens suggest worst flooding in living memory.  So we’ve escaped the worst but are going to have to keep off the grass for a few days to let it dry out.

No runners at Hexham tomorrow, just don’t fancy taking on the extreme conditions at this stage in the season, only runner this week likely to be on Fri or Sat at Haydock.

34 to ride today and with Amy injured, Toni off for a knee operation, Stephen riding at Fakenham, Lucy riding out in Langholm, a horse to take to Clydevet for a minor operation, and Kim the physio in for the morning it all feels a little bit busy but they will all be ridden for an hour in 3 lots without trainer having to check whether his body protector still fits – it’s getting worryingly close though!

We've done a lot of work in this big grass field recently and the sheep are becoming alarmingly disinterested, we'll be jumping them soon!

A few pics depicting life at Kinneston taken by Frank a week or so ago. Of course it’s Tuesday, handicapper day, always interesting.
