Pony weightwatchers

Weigh in day and the tape still says 504kg.  Steady is good :o)  The weather has turned, so he's back in the bottom two fields again - his restricted turnout finished last week and so far (touch wood) he's been back on full space turnout with no problems, despite a bit of bouncing.

As per the horse listener's suggestion he's currently unrugged and the improvement in his skin has been amazing.  Virtually no dandruffy lumps and he's been warm whenever I've checked him, so he'll stay naked for as long as we can manage.  He's got a field shelter with a bed down, water and a haynet if he wants it, but he's been preferring to stay outside, albeit he seems to be attempting to thatch himself by rolling in sheep shit...

I've started running again this week.  I only intended to run 5 miles, split 1.25, 1, 1.25, 1.5, but ended up running 1.25, 1 and 5.15 after I discovered a runner doing 40 marathons in 40 days was coming past the village and wanted company.  I'm planning 6 miles next week, 1.5, 1, 1.5, 2.
