Sooty and Duck-duck

Only the original three ducks have names, Boris, sister Doris and Duck-duck, mother of the ducklings. The exception is Sooty, one of the two ducks in the brood, and distinguished by her gorgeous black head.

These recent frosty mornings the ducks have taken to standing on the muck heap, presumably because it will be warm up there. Years ago I worked at a stud yard and every hard frosty morning after the yard work was done and our feet were frozen, we would climb the huge muck heap and dig holes to stand in. Bliss!!!
