Sadly the weather was not on our side and we were unable to have the Friday drink out on the dance floor of the coupe, instead we sat inside by the fire. The Matriarch said maybe next Friday. I told The Kiwi Builder to invite his whole family next time. His children are all home schooled so they will call it a field day.
The strong cold wind howled all day, and no-one would come out of the barn and into the sun for a photo. I found L’il Puss The Scrapper (one of the barn cats) guarding the milk bucket, and managed a low light shot but every one else had their heads down. They all hate the wind.
So both my photographic plans were thwarted.
Good morning. We will try for the last of the shots today and then new shots will happen and who knows what will come next. It is hilarious to even try to plan what images will appear on any given day.
So, in the barn are three kittens. Author who is a female tabby, LouLou who is the wee ginger male and L’il Puss The Scrapper who is older, was discovered hiding in the hairdresser’s back room in town and is now the boss of the barn. Cats are important for keeping the rodent population down in the barn. Where there is feed, there are mice. Hence the cats. The kittens literally sit under Daisy and wait for their milk in the morning. Before Daisy moves out of the milking parlour she puts her head down very low, hoovering from side to side and kind of scoops any strays out of the way with her nose.
I hope you all have a lovely day. It will be warmer here (in the low 40′s I think), so the hoses will come out and all the water containers will be cleaned and refilled in preparation for the next cold snap which they say will be very cold this time.
