And for the rain and cold - well, actually, there are always plenty of dry spells between showers, and a dry airy barn offering shelter from the worst of weather. The sheepskins we use for riding in Winter also help to keep us warm and cosy!
And if that is not enough, well, there is Henry with his big hairy mane and soft deep fur, offering warm hugs.....
