Walking at home this morning
We had the first foal of the season born this morning, not sure if its a filly or a colt but always exciting. John and I walked up the very steep hill behind the house, it was damp and a bit overcast. To think I once used to race up this hill with no problems. Now I tackle it with a stick and frequent rests. It was lovely to get up there and see the in foal mares and the green paddocks, even if some of them are now no longer ours. I have been sorting through some books and took some over for Millie and Mason, natural history books and references for birds and plants I thought they might find useful. Millie tells me she has glasses and it makes reading a lot easier. So glad they have sorted out that problem.
