Victoria and Albert

No, not the museum but these two gorgeous horses.  John has been looking after a friend's horses and I tagged along for feeding time.
Looks like they have been playing in the mud.

There five horses and they are all very sweet except Paris who is quite naughty.  She wouldn't let me pat her until I'd run around for about 15 minutes picking big bunches of fresh grass, which was growing on my side of the fence, and popping it in her mouth.  Look at those naughty ears drawn back before I bought her friendship with food.
One of the wonderful things about Michael's property are these magnificent trees.
It was lots of fun.

This is one of the cutest potholders I have ever seen.
And again we are so lucky as a very generous blogger has shared the fabulous design with us for free. You can find the pattern HERE, shared by wonderful Andrea of Jolijou The Blog.  Thank you so much Andrea.
