…what a scorcher! Where did this come from? Back from a quick trip south and it is really, really hot, 27 degrees to be precise and stifling – better get the haylage cut as (dare I say it) the forecast looks good. Splendid day at Royal Ascot yesterday, the greatest party on earth and some pretty good racing to go with it, lovely to catch up with old friends and make some new ones.
More fun tomorrow hopefully at the Royal Highland Show so just as well there aren’t too many horses to train here at the moment though I am increasingly alarmed by how large some of them appear, maybe it’s just after seeing all the flat horses but the grass has been exceptional this year and we will have to start rationing it for a few more of them.
