Ann Howe's Diary 08-03-16
I’ve just had one of those Bad Hair Days. Couldn’t do a thing with it.
We had a visit from a very nice bunch of people at the weekend. They wanted to meet us and take us for a lovely walk through the village and we’re always up for this.
Now, persuading us to enter our lovely new barn is very easy. Wave a net of hay or even better a dipper of the tasty stuff and we all bundle in pretty pronto.
Great excitement breaks out, I can tell you, and it’s snouts in the trough when the new fresh food is offered.
I made a bit of a state of myself, I admit. Yum, yum yum, and head first into the depths of the hay. But I was asked to make myself available for haltering so I stood still whilst new best mate Harriet haltered me. Apparently I looked a bit messy beforehand, but she soon cleaned me up and I was happy to be groomed. My coat has a curl to it - it’s really very fine - and my sisters are normally quite jealous of my white and grey hair, so I was the butt of all their jokes which was a bit mean.
Harriet groomed me and removed the last of the hay and we were happy to have our picture taken.
Lovely trek, lovely people and lovely grub, hurrah!
