    I have been on nights (the joys of night shifts!) Saturday was my first day off but stupid me slept ALL day! So i didnt give sox has tea until 8pm armed with headtorch. X the pony next door was in with sox. Each time i got him out he came back under the fence. My battery was low. So i left when he finally stayed out. Came down sunday to find x pony bsck in and sox with a lovely tiny bit deep cut right where his splint bone is :(
