On Tuesday, the weather was perfect - blue sky, not a cloud in sight. After taking a couple of the ponies for a walk, we had more time for doing self-selection. In the photo below, Graham is learning how to use one of the special techniques we use to get the ponies used to unfamiliar objects - Dan was frightened of the feed scoop to start with and wouldn't go near it, and Graham helped Dan to see that it wasn't scary at all. Hazel-Ann and Graham have donated a second scoop to use for self-selection, so that should speed up the process a bit - it does take a while to get around to all 6 ponies with all their supplements.

On the whole, all the ponies are enjoying being out much more - the continuing dry cold weather is really improving the ground conditions. If the trough freezes over, Frodo has a clever trick of using one of his front legs to smash the ice.
