..all day long at the Over Dalkeith Own a Pony Day today. It was action packed as well with everyone arriving at 8.30am and bringing their ponies in from the field. We then groomed our ponies and gave them haynets and water before starting the mucking out.
The six were split into two team and the teams took a stable each and we had a competition to see which team could muck out the best. There was a big bar of chocolate for the winning team…
..and a big bar of chocolate for the runners up.
