Gimpy Annie and Speckles are all looking like the nursery is going to be occupied very shortly, clearly, walking is an issue when you have a milky bar between your back legs and the ladies are looking exceedingly miserable.
It would seem like Spring is in the air if I hadn't heard this mornings weather forcast, the sky is deceptively blue and cloud free, the wind is gentle and we have had just the odd raindrop to remind us it is still Winter in Seattle. The depressing forcast is heavy rain and damaging winds, I'll take the first option if I may ! Spring has a strange effect on the barnyard residents. I guess thats how the "mad March hare" came into English folklore, Spring fever even gets into the normally placid Lady, our Shire Horse mare gets a feisty skip in her normally steady plod. Hassan (aka the Terrorist) doesn't need Spring fever to get him stirred up and Charm, the palamino just uses any excuse for a bit of attitude.
Well, time to go, I'm sitting here in the barn kitchen snug and toasty warm in the heat of the wood stove. While I have been sitting here typing with my 2 fingers, the sky has turned grey and significant and quite threatening clouds are obscuring the previously clear blue. Looks like we may be in for some serious weather. Take care, keep safe. M
