"Nothing Special" ...

TF Hamish - So much more than just 'special'

Hamish doesn't get to star in photo shoots as often as he probably should because he lives 1km up the road with my parents in law. I see him every day, often twice a day, but I rarely remember to take a camera with me. Today I went up with my camera and the grooming kit (omg I really needed the shampoo and shammy, he's so filthy!) and I took some photos and today I am going to share a few of those photos as it is about time Hamish got a starring role in this blog again.

As you will see, Hamish is guilty of eating ALL the pies. I'm kind of embarrassed to show photos of him so fat but he's happy and healthy and winter is coming so he might drop a couple of kgs ... Hamish winters out without a cover, grows hardly any winter coat and lives off nothing! They call that hybrid vigor!

Breeding season - Enya, Maude and Megan

Breeding season is pretty much done, phew! Brennan served the last mare for the last time today and scans booked for the week after Horse of the Year. The Pinky Pony was pretty good but we hand-served rather than ran her with Brennan and she did need holding. All went well though so now we cross our fingers tightly and pray for a positive result.

Apparently planning permission is nearly complete and we had word today that our shed will be delivered, weather allowing, next Wednesday so that's pretty exciting. Better give the builder the heads up!

I wandered out with the camera today and, as per usual, took about eleventy thousand photos. So, here are a few of them for your viewing pleasure.
