Will this rain never relent? All the grazing sites even the normally dry ones have water laying on the surface after the weekend. Maybe we will have a nice dry September and October to make up for it all!
Over the past week we have had a pony and a sheep succumb; both with natural causes. The pony is from one particular herd on Exmoor which does seem to have a congenital heart defect in some of the offspring. Still very sad but at least they had a natural existence conservation grazing while they are with us.

The photo below is of some Soay sheep sheltering in the shade on one of the few hot days we have had.
