days like this one... small towns that are still small towns, crisp autumn days, with unending bright blue skies, the breath of frost in the wind enough to let you dig out the soft warmth of a scarf to enjoy it but still plenty of the golden sort of sunshine that is unique to autumn dappling gloriously through the trees and warming your shoulders. It's like stepping into a "wish you were here" postcard.
I also heard from the Coloured Sheep folks, through whom I'll be locating all my sheep. I also heard back from a lady and have arranged to pick up five Indian Runner ducks tomorrow. As well, the guy we are getting the line of credit through is also quite knowledgeable about stock having used to raise english leisters for wool, cattle, chooks etc. so I've been getting some nice advice and good stories in that respect and he's putting me in touch with a good local shearer who deals
with small volume customers.
Also I have to wish Amanda's beautiful, gorgeous boy LEO a belated but sincere HAPPY THIRD BIRTHDAY!!!
Some recent pics...
La proving we really must get him a human sibling and soon... (I didn't train him to do this, honest! He's just mimicing Hope!)
La and Noir, looking disgruntled at having been disturbed from his puddle of sunshine snooze.
And the pen for the ducks. Yes the fence is leaning in the shot... there is an area dug out around it where there's wire being laid down under it so foxes can't dig into it, then it gets backfilled.
