Was the US lotto struck and is there a plane load of horsey folks heading my way.
I dispatched a sheep yesterday in antisipation of your arrival. I strung it up, then left she who must be obeyed to skn and clean, I will do the hard part dividing it into cuts of meat, but if you lot arrive we will spit roast it.
She who must be is not well this morning. I made her a coffee and alI she could manage is a grunt. No thankyou, not even a smile. I ambled outside to Stella she gave me that i'm outa here look. The sun is shining, no wind, I'm going fishing, never know, we may have fish with the spit roast, or for breakfast.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

Susan, I love the umbrella or is it a parasol?

We need it for the rain.

I treated myself to a Canon EOS D50 camera a while back. I love it but wish I was good at reading instructions because I would get a lot more out of it if I knew what all the buttons were for.

I hate having to read constructions before setting out to build something, much more fun to just get on and do it and find three spare parts! Makes life more interesting.

We moved some young Call Ducks from an enclosed pen to a bigger pen with a paddling pool - darn things would not go to bed. I was not happy with them as they kept scattering in all directions, as fast as I got some in the house, they turned around and ran back out.

Now they are out there I will have to keep the gun ready in case crows or jackdaws come to take them. I do not see the point of 'decorative' ducks, which these are. No good for eggs and certainly not for meat. Em loves them so they stay and to be fair they fetch silly money at the auctions.

CW Any nearer finding horses to lease? How is settling into your new home going?

Going to get an early night, ready to start in the morning. I really must get some housework done and some laundry. I will be running out of dry things to wear if I do not do the latter. I hate using the drier and would rather dry outside but that is near impossible with the weather - and the hounds think it great sport to grab hold of anything on the rotary drier and swing around on it. Clothes pegs do not hold the weight of a Foxhound pup so I find clothes spread all over the orchard.

Night night all.
Foxhunter is online now

Foxhunter I use a cannon S5IS I brought when in the States Cost half what I would pay for it in NZ but getting a little dated now and to large to handle when on a horse.

However did you know, when god finished making Eve he also had 3 parts left over. Yep, its true, I have it on good authority, and he used those three extra parts to make Adam. Got to have got myself into trouble over that one.

I am sorry in advance to all of those I may have offended and to those I no doubt will, at some time in the future.

A couple of photos
First is one of the paddock she was in and an open gate. That gate goes into the garden, she has opened it navigated her way past the green house, and via the trees, woodshed, to the back lawn.

Second photo, Stella standing by the garage enjoying the grass.

Some how she opened the gate into the garden and ate her way to the lawn. Now all of those strange things she had to pass before getting to the grass helps to convince me when she spooks at the imaginary horse devouring sparrow. She is playing with me.
