Everything back to normal today except that Nick is having a week off so did not come for his usual Tuesday stint.
Mike made a start moving some earth from behind the barn so that Larry, our builder neighbour, can make a start on the supporting wall that will surround our "sunken garden" left when they removed earth to level out the ground for the new barn.
We bought some poor quality straw a while ago which was dark and full of sticks and other unexpected additions and Mike replaced it with some better quality bales so he has been using the left overs to try and cover up some of the most muddy and slippery areas in the race and the gateways. It is a temporary solution but we hope it will keep the tracks viable until they have dried out.
