Lizzy is pregnant. Her foal is due in about 5-6 weeks time. Her companion in their paddock is Nelson and while Lizzy bonds with her foal, Nelson (who is a gelded racehorse) will go go to 'horse-camp' for some training and to give Lizzy and her new foal free reign (or rein lol) in their paddock. Lizzy got extra pears and carrots from me today, and I'm really looking forward to photographing her and her baby.
The horses weren't alone in their paddocks. Good numbers of Woodpigs, Starlings, a lone female Kestrel and about 20+ Fieldfare and a solo Redwing were in the paddocks too. Also had several Cormorants flying over the yard. I'm guessing these are being flushed from the dis-used fishing lake next to my work yard. I've noticed a lot of activity at the lake recently so maybe its back in use.
As Blogger has been unkind to me the last few times, and wouldn't let me post my pics in order, I'll just post randomly and be done with it. Its late, and I'm up early again for work tomorrow so haven't really got the time to keep uploading a photo then having to delete it as its in the wrong place. I really hope Blogger sorts this out. My New Year Resolution was to keep a blog, and I don't want to have to stop after just a couple of months......
