But the dogs have loved every minute of it.!
Charlie, my little black Patterdale guest dog is coming indoors with a white belly and very white whiskers!
But for idiots the prize has got to go to Tilly and Maddie - helped by me!
Don't worry, they've not slipped on ice, they really are jumping!
I thought I would also post two photos of my daughter's beautiful horse Pan. The first shows his teeth but the second photo is a little more flattering!
