Very cold and very muddy

I spent Saturday on a horse going very fast through a lot of puddles, and thick mud.  Most of it ended up on my face.  When I tried to eat my jelly babies,  I had a packet in my pocket, everyone else moved off, and so did my horse.  Have you ever tried to eat jelly babies whilst cantering along with 30 other horses around you.  Its not so easy especially when you have cold fingers.  It was of course all part of an old country pastime, now conducted within the “new” hunting laws, but I don’t think Parliament thought about how to get jelly babies out of your pocket and eat them without dropping them in the mud.
