If It's Not One Thing It's Another
Nice to see the back of the snow - not so nice to have to endure the obvious deluge of water that follows the thaw!! All of the horses are back in the swing of things now, but unfortunately they were unable to school E Major today due to the conditions in the 'jumps field', and as I said last week, Mrs Robeson is very much against running anything until they have schooled as they have not jumped anything for at least a couple of weeks due to the snow. This will put E Majors run on Wednesday very much in doubt, but he will have more entries soon. Sam Jones was in this morning on his way to Market Rasen, and he had a sit on Bobby Gee, who appears in good form, and far happier now that the snow has gone. He has not enjoyed the last couple of weeks in the snow as he couldn't do his usual level of work. Bobby has an entry at Sandown on Friday, and will also have a couple of entries on Saturday at Chepstow and Kempton, and we will pick the best option for him later in the week.
