Better to have it nearby and not need it that to need it and not have it to hand!
After a quick google, I found full images of the purchased goods - as you can tell from my photo; they are all still in their packaging - here's hoping i won't be needing the rugs any time soon. Fingers crossed summer is here and the rain will buzz off for good!

My week so far has been thankfully un-eventful, in the best way! :)
Monday evening The Mammy & I went to feed, pick hooves and give the three girls a once over as L couldn't make it.
Tuesday, the Guru & I went for a lovely long hack. I took Nancy and we had our first gallop along a lovely trail. L also reminded me that as we're not likely to be doing any arena work for a while to remember to alternate my diagonals when riding trot through the woods, so that we don't make one side stronger than the other. She also reminded me to try to get the girls to change leads when cantering for the same reason, I have only just started working on this with Kika in an arena, so we'll see if we can implement that on the trails.
Wednesday, I unfortunately had no way of getting to the field - please keep everything crossed for me passing my driver's test first time next week! EEK! *freaking-out*
The Guru had the day off and got out to check on them during the day to feed/give carrots/pick feet & remove any ticks - nasty buggars!
Thursday (last night), the Guru & I both got to the field and went for a small hack, I took Kika this time and we put on our big girl panties and led most of the way including for our canter along the boundaries of a field - where the crops on either side had terrifying monsters in Kika's opinion, so we had some funny side-way leaps from her!

Two final photos to sign off with, both taken last night.
The plan for the weekend is to hopefully soak up some sunshine, as temps are finally due to hit high 20s and stay for a few days!
Slight downside is evening hacking to avoid the worst heat of the day & evil fly creatures - but I don't mind that so much so long as we get some long over-due infusion of Vit D!
My other plans for the weekend are simply to try fit in some driving practice and get to another yard to check out some Polo matches. One of the Directors of the company my mother works for owns Polo Ponies - so we're hopefully going to get to check them out...I still think it's mad that although I was lucky enough to visit Argentina last autumn, I didn't manage to take in any Polo actions...oh wells, guess i'll just have to make a return trip some time! *rofl*
