Warm enough today to take rugs off for a couple of hours in the middle of the day.
Cloud is looking more and more like Katy Stardust; developing a very substantial maternal physique. She hasn't got the same dappled palomino coat as Katy, though, she's a completely even colour.
There's been a bit of a passing parade to take the mob's interest lately. Neighbours have adopted a lamb which has escaped for a constitutional with his two canine 'minders', a golden retriever and a Jack Russell terrier. A very cute trio.
Then yesterday we had a small flock of 6 sheep, tasting the verges alongside the paddock.
Today it was another neighbour's goat, "Woolly" (!!!) which came to visit. He got a good checking over!
Gracie trotted half a dozen even steps today; her hind sole seems to be repairing nicely.
And the bird life is coming in close to clean up after the horses!
