Sunday Bath!

“ Lets take the youngster to the river, get him used to the water!” ……..So we did, it was really quite fun.

A gathering at my house, thats “Patrick” on the right, “Polly” the coloured Cob on the left. Gracie was in the stable, to the immediate right.

Gracie was really quite bouncy today, and with the high winds blowing the snow around, it was an interesting ride!  It snowed off and on, but by God! It was bitterly cold, an East wind was ripping  old and damaged branches from the trees.

This is a series of shots where Patrick and Polly get to cross and re cross one of our local small rivers.

The first few times Gracie lead, but after that, they did it themselves! Of course someone had to take the piccies!
