Feeding the ponies

 About half an houir ago while I was walking Max. Sarah, Mason and Isabelle with Fern the cairn terrier in the very old toyota.
More used as a wheelbarrow, doing the rounds and feeding ponies.
Max had to investigate Sarah. Here they are with a Welsh Mountain Stallion and a mare in the dam paddock behind the house.
It is always a squash with so many in the poor old toyota, normally it is only Sarah and Fern but today Masons mother Gaby is working and Isabelle is home from work so is helping to move some of the ponies around.
The final shot is across the paddocks to - more ponies and down the valley. Click on that one to enlarge the photo.
Cool and muggy today, after a hot one yesterday, no rain so far and we will be lucky if we get any. Looking at these photos it still looks a bit green but it is drying off quickly and these paddocks have been sown with rye grass to give a bit more feed if we do get any rain.

It must be the most wonderful place to live in spite of the lack of rain. I get such a sense of freedom looking out over the valley.
