I worried all last night about my animals. The night was long and very harsh. We lost power for a couple of hours and it has been coming and going today.
This morning I woke up fully expecting to see equine, and possibly ovine, corpses everywhere.
Luckily, this was not to be and I made the executive decision that everyone at Thordale should come in for a rest.
With Daisy and Flossie leading Kappi and Taktur, the rest quickly followed over the hill and came home. No one needed asking twice.
We separated the group into little ones by themselves (much to Newt’s fury).
Kappi and Taktur together.
Kappi can be a bit territorial over food but he will share nicely with Taktur and I didn’t want the little ones in an argument.
My money would be on Newt, anyway. God help everyone else.
The rest went into the big school.
We have been putting out hay and water for them all day and they can stay there, regroup, rest and fill up.
Floss and Richard checked the ones at Leradale who have lots of grass and shelter. Delia had her grub. They are all very happy and fat.
This afternoon, we put up the Christmas decorations.
I love it when the house is Christmassy. Happy days. Wu has only been up the tree once. Daisy has to “make” one more sheep for the tree.
