Long Time No See ...............................

I thought I would get around to blogging again.  The knitwear side of the business really took off and so the blog got put to one side, I was fed up with messing around trying to get photographs to upload and it was taking up valuable time.  We sold so much through the summer and had taken so many orders that by the time they were finished the Xmas orders had started to come in.  We sold our last items at 5pm on Xmas Eve.

It is really cold here tonight and we have a blanket of snow that makes everything look clean and tidy in the paddocks.  The poor animals have been closed in the barn for the past few days but they were allowed out this afternoon while we mucked out the barn.

 The first thing that the girls decided to do when they were allowed out was to go roughly where their dustbath/mudbath is and roll in the snow.

 Eleanor Rigby charged and jumped around the paddock making the most of her freedom.  

Cherrybomb had been pronking but looks as though she had had enough and was going back to the barn.

The boys are not enjoying being in the barn at all and whenever Si goes down to check on them they have a moan.  The girls are normally quite happy in there as long as they have a good supply of sweet hay.

At the moment all the water is frozen but as we have gone through this before we now know to collect as much as possible before it freezes.
