Frozen Mud !! .....Yippee

Thawed but now frozen.....!


Zaninni.....standing by the gate with a dusting of hail stones....waiting for bed-time !


I have been graced this week with frozen mud...which is a great change from the horrible soft stuff !

I seem to spend about half the year squelching through the stuff...thankfully the depth varies.....however when it freezes ...its great....just like concrete !

We have had a bit of a mixed week for the weather, sleet, winter sun and now frozen mud, not to mention the wind returning briefly.

The alpacas are always ready to come in for bed, they are usually found loitering around the gates from 3pm onwards.....

The onset of Christmas has crept up on us here at Zanzibah Land....I can't believe that its that time of year again......I have been busy sorting out some Christmas decorations tonight......Everette Green has been taken out of his box and is sitting pride of place, so we are getting into the festive spirit !

I have my feed in, the log store is full and the coal man has also been.....we are stocked up. I'm looking forward to my parents coming up for Christmas.....

Time to try and take it easy......

Well that's the general idea...I wonder if its going to be a reality !!

It's looking very festive with the snow up there (give me the frozen stuff any day). Are we going to see the barn decorated too!

Yep, much better than the squelchy stuff! Hope you are managing to keep warm. Take care. Shirley & Robbie

3pm is exactly when the Clydesdales come to the gate and act pitiful, wanting in.
