Happy and settled and enjoying the Cheshire grass.

Beautiful bright sunshine makes getting through the jobs more pleasant. Morena, Colada and Milano have been led out and the herd moved into the house field for the winter, with the weaned mares joining them. Lovely to see them all fluffy and muddy and enjoying the extremely mild autumn.

Colada has been weaned for a couple of days now, a beautiful foal I hope she is going to be just the right mix of extremely cute and a little bit feisty and that Gemma will really enjoy her. The lovely Mojito is still growing like a weed, that is him standing in front of "Uncle" Bombero who is a yearling. Uncle Bombero would love someone to buy him and save him from his babysitting duties (preferably before Mojito is bigger than him!)

Spur of the moment decision to dash down to London to see the Poppy installation on Remembrance Sunday before they start to remove them on the 12th. A look at the train times suggested it could be done with a 5hr and 3min window of opportunity in London, wouldn't want to hang about but definitely "do-able".
Reginald the Chelsea Pensioner Bear gave his uniform a good brush and when he was spick and span we headed off to Carlisle station. Just a wee delay of fifty minutes (arrrgh) but soon we were on the train and heading to the sunny south. We arrived at Euston and Reggie suggested a quick four mile TAB to the Tower - I bundled an unsuspecting bear into a taxi instead. We made it, just in time for the last of the sun to illuminate the poppies and we walked all around the tower both impressed by the spectacle and saddened by what they signified (every poppy indicates a Serviceman's death in WW1).
Reggie posed for a few snaps (not just mine), pulled a much younger woman in the Tower of London Shop and we headed home, glad we'd seen it.

5yo Jackson owned by Gemma Hope has been out and about despite the wild and windy weather. He has had a few mornings Autumn hunting and some cross country outings too. This month there is a lesson with Mary King planned before he has his shoes off for a holiday (with some babysitting of his little sister thrown in!). Photo by DLT Photography.
Broodie chook number two was trying to catch a few rays of sunshine today but the little ones were giving her no peace at all. A nice day today though the forecast for tomorrow is truly disgusting. Fatty, Bridget and Ned are rugged, the others will no doubt call me rude names.
