I have one on the way, two shires in full harness.... Not sure why i thought it would be a good idea.
Yes! i always had that problem with pencils, start drawing and then find they've gone soft; not that I'm much good with them anyway. The heat is no good for my head either and I'm supose to be going hacking a bit but the ground's too hard, no fun at all. Even the fish are complaining about it but the shrimp have gone mental; decided to breed, gone from 10 to 50+ in teh past few weeks and thats just the ones that arn't hiding
How are the ponies? you were breaking a fell pony were you not?
