Rain, and consequences
Cloud is still growing; taller than Maybellene now, and she,too, has grown again since she's been back in work!!
'Twas supposed to be Jump Club at Maitland Showground today, but with about 20ml of rain overnight and continuing today, it's off. Dressage at Alexander Park is probably off too, which the North Kaludah crew were set for.
Yesterday, Saturday, was beautiful weather. I brought Maybellene home for about a month's break whilst Christine and Jeremy concentrate on the Dressage Championships at SIEC next weekend and then Equitana at Melbourne after that. North Kaludah apprentice, Megan Riley, enjoyed a couple of rides on Maybellene and will probably prepare her for a Young Rider's competition when she gets back to work.
Pan was supposed to be jumping today but the weather has put paid to that. Emma rang before 7am, with truck 'all packed and nowhere to go', so she's riding him, early, at home. She says he's working beautifully and is going to be a "really, really good jumper"!!! Heath suggests trying to get a late entry to Camden Horse Trials for next weekend before bringing him home as he's ready for the task.
What if it rains?? The ground is soaking it up and the garden is thriving, but other plans keep shifting. Oh well!! I'd love to see him competing again!
