Lots of them!
First the inhabitants in and around the Home Barn.
Egoli trying to stop Geraldine from pecking at his haunches. That is one mean peahen when she wants to be.
Tima and Tane. I have just realised I forgot to shut their gate to the inside of the barn so I bet they got up to no good in the night. It will be shut the whole time I am away so this is their last mischief day.
Boo trying to work out exactly what that black shape IS that was following him about yesterday.
The steers, taking the sun and looking large. I saw the merest suggestion of a sundog yesterday. It was cold.
Do you remember the Bad Winter of 2014. That winter we had REAL sundogs. Terrifying mages.
Anytime, anyone complains about the cold I think of the winter of 2014 and think Nah, not so cold. 2014 was COLD.
The West Barn. Here are the cows who live at the West Barn. Little Alex is there just inside the barn. Shy as usual. Lady Astor, Aunty Del and in behind Aunty Anna and Carlos behind her. Taking the sun. A little sun and they all come out.
Poppy the sow. Molly the younger sow is there too but at my feet barking at me as I took these shots.
Back to the Home Fields again.
Above (from left) is Txiki, BobbyT3 and Our Tia. Thank you again to those of the Fellowship (you know who you are – your privacy is safe) who donated money towards Tia’s vet bill and Sheila’s winter vegetables. I love that you want to be so involved and i am glad that the donate button enables you to do so. The animals and I are so very grateful.
Yesterday Sheila ate all her carrots and apples in porridge then went back to bed for the morning. It was that cold. And blowing.
OK – that is all from me for a few days. You will have three guest posts then I will be back with images of London in the late afternoon for you. On Monday, after an overnight flight from Chicago to London, Camera House and I will be travelling via the underground and the feet (maybe a cab at some point) from London’s Heathrow International Airport to Islington, London, with a few stops along the way.
There is another Tube strike being called but it is not across the off peak hours I will be travelling – it will be busy but running – another good reason to have small maneuverable bags.
I hope you have a lovely few days.
See you in London in a couple of days.
ps. For those of you too busy to follow the link – here is that picture of the sun dogs from 2014.
We were a land forgotton that winter.
