Went and collected daughter 2's horse, Radia, from the equestrian place this morning. She is looking much slimmer, it was obvious she was depressed being in a stable though they did put her outside for a bit each day. Took a few attempts getting her in the trailer and I got a bit of a rope burn, I wasn't even really holding the rope, it just slithered across my thumb. But she didn't sweat at all on the journey, last time she was soaked, so she must have thought she was going home! She was very surprised to see the cows in the field next door to daughter's, but quite cool about meeting Lena again. I thought they would be more excited, but they just went off calmly together to graze, then came back together for hay. Lena is wearing the rug.
We had lunch with the family, 2 grandchildren, and came home just before dusk so I could pick greenery from the garden. I've done 2 bouquets with silk poinsettias in them for the Carol Service tomorrow.
