The wind has finally stopped blowing and the rain has abated too. Bliss.
So Floss and I went for a walk. We took Haakon…..
Iacs (do him good)…..
Klængur, BeAnne, ‘Bert, ‘Ster and Lambie. I think that was all of us.
The Boyzens were happy to follow after us.
Haakon, of course, led the way.
(I love this photo! – my two preciousnesses ❤️ together)
Sometimes we had to wait for the stragglers. I think someone had recently gritted the road and sheep love the taste of whatever they put down).
And on we forged ….
… with occasional breaks for thistle-eating.
So important. I am sure they are good horses. They seem to love them and search them out, even the old dried flower heads.
And then we all turned round and went home again.
BeAnne kept the stragglers motivated. Sort of.
It was lovely going out with Haakon. I have missed this so much.
Sometimes we let Haakon and Iacs do their own thing……
Though, on retrospect, I am not sure if that was wise! It all went a bit Jungle Book elephants.
However, everyone was surprisingly good about not treading on BeAnne, which seemed to be her main aim throughout most of the walk.
At the end we diverted into the hill and put the boys back into their regular field, Clothie.
What a perfect way to spend the afternoon. Lovely.
