Re: hunter boots stiffness in some colors

(if it is of any comfort, it's literally a textbook example of false correlation from too small a sample size - you assume that one variable (stiffness) is correlated with another (colour) when in fact both are random through the population._

Re: hunter boots stiffness in some colors

Again, I think you are making a mistake by linking this to colour. I've seen green batches which have the wax coating, and green ones that don't. I think you need to appreciate that hunter are not running some mad colour coding process to create boots with very slightly different qualities for each ...

Re: south coast walk and mud

There's also good mud along from Lyme Regis, and as girlinwellies notes, "fossil hunting" is a perfectly decent explanation for what you are doing there.

Re: south coast walk and mud

It's not strictly the south coat, but depending on where you are, either the severn estuary by the old Severn bridge (wide mudflats that mostly aren't too deep, but hit at least thigh deep in some of the creeks) or burnham on sea (soft mudflats from calf deep or deeper, exercise caution) might be op...

My friend Karen and I had been talking about taking our horses there for a while, but we only actually got around to it last week. We’d arranged to go up on a...
