They'd steal the coat off your back!

"This should make good nest lining"
"oi clear off!"
"Does my bum look big in this?"
Yesterday we took Bramley and Ambrosia to a country fair held for the Childrens Hospice South-West, at Cossington, a near-by village - a good day, with plenty of interest in Joys fibre-craft courses, and the rain held off until we got home in time to put a coat on Discovery - his sire was Ashill Fandango, a mid-brown with a consistantly fine fleece, and so with Pelachutas line having fawn and brown, we were expecting a fawn or brown, but were surprised how dark he is - we'll watch to see what comes out from below the skin in the coming weeks.

I had just gone into the house after taking endless pictures of Discovery, when Joy came shouting, "come and see this!" - it was the magpies on Moiras back, so I raced out with the camera.

Now, concentrate on the footie...
