I knew tomorrow (i.e. today) was going to be a “day o shite”, so I went out last night (i.e. yesterday) with my camera last thing to see if the boys were all settled down.
It was a lovely calm and peaceful evening. Red (ish) sky and no wind which makes a mockery of the saying “red sky at night, shepherd’s delight”.
Taktur is settling back in again. I am sure he enjoyed his summer holiday but is glad to see his old friends.
He is tolerating The Minions and I expect, and hope, them to all be firm friends by the end of winter.
So this is last night. All quiet, peaceful and calm. Nothing moving.
And this is today. As you can see the field is flooded and you can imagine the weather is vile. I am already on my second pair of trousers having taken the aged Jack out for his walk. He can’t half shift when the weather is bad. I was impressed.
The horses are ignoring what is going on. This is still summer for them and it is not that cold so they are happily stuffing their faces. I am worried that I cannot see Storm in this photo but he is very small so probably tucked under Iacs’ belly or something. (Update – OH says he saw him on Loki’s dog walk – phew, relief).
Oh yes, and if you have ever wondered how BeAnne gets through the fences…..
Well now you know!
