We had to have Hilary’s old collie, Meg put to sleep last night, a sad lost to the family.
For the past couple of years her favourite pastime was herding the hens!
Or just watching them!
For the past few days she had to turn her talents from livestock the lighter duties…..
Every morning I drive up to Slaley to see my Mother and feed the animals, the light yesterday morning was good so I thought I should have a shot of the Townfoot end of the village as I passed by.
A few hundred meters down the road the light was slightly hazy to the east and a pony was standing on the skyline. Perhaps he could hear my horses and the donkeys?
