Hello there fellow Bloggers! Many thanks for your comments on my previous post. It's been a funny sort of week. Lots of rain, of course! But today we at last had some sunshine which meant that I could mow the lawn which had grown at a tremendous pace following the amount of rainfall we've had.
On Tuesday, the OH was at work and so KP and I went to our local town and went shopping. KP got some books to read during the holiday and I purchased an old enamel basin - which I will take a photo of once I have found some plants to put in it! We lunched at Costa and then visited the sweet shop!
When we got home it rained and I popped outside to take the above photo before rushing quickly back indoors where we remained closeted for the rest of the day.
Yesterday we took KP and her friend bowling. I was pretty hopeless!
Today, KP was invited to a friends house and as it was near to where we had seen the ponies a week or so ago, I thought on the off chance, after KP was dropped off at her friends, that I would go and see if the ponies were closer to the gate this time. They weren't where I had seen them the first time but discovered that there was another entrance to the field and that the ponies were close to this.
This foal was very near and didn't seem at all perturbed by me standing there with my camera.
Some of the other ponies were further away but still much closer than when we'd spotted them previously.
There are a total of five foals. Only three were seen standing up, the other two were lying completely flat on the grass. This one had been asleep too but lifted its head for a short while!
The first foal that I saw was more of a poser than the rest.
One of the two foals that remained horizontal for the 15 minutes that I stood and admired them.
I do love foals.
This little one had been busy watching me and hadn't seen that mum had moved away.
"Wait for me!"
Watching me, watching you!
After taking the above photos I turned around and saw this - which I thought was interesting.
I wondered how long it had been in that position with the convulvulous growing all over it!
Well, that seems to be it for now.
Until next time,
