Bless you Flurry…
…for I have missed you. It’s been two weeks since our last hack! Our penance was to join Alexandrine, Max and Valentine on a short loop. Actually, no. That wasn’t a penance at all!!
Out through the woods at the back of the farm…
and along the ridge that looks over the valley towards Sainte-Croix-à-Lauze.
There were loads and loads of gigantic puddles after all the torrential rain we’ve been having. Puddles are a rarity here and are a great opportunity to wash muck off hooves.
We crossed the road and went down through the woods to take a look at the (usually dry) stream that runs below Flurry & Aero’s paddock. It had a little water, not much. I didn’t take any photos there because Somebody was remembering he hadn’t been ridden for two weeks and was now heading home after a very short hack. There was a wee bit of head shaking going on as we slid down the steep hill towards the stream. Nope, my iPhone had to stay in my pocket at that point!
Then we climbed up the hill on the other side and said hello to MoMo and Aero as we passed.
Back on to the road for 50 metres or so, lavender field beside us and the Alps in the distance.
This evening, there was one of these in the sky behind the house. I’m sure there’s a name for this – does anyone know?
For anyone who’s wondering why I’m taking photos with my iPhone, my little camera ♥ had a mishap. People with good memories will remember that I put the old one in the washing machine by accident. This one had an entire mug of tea spilled over it. It’s still working, but the lens cover doesn’t close fully anymore so I can’t stuff it in my pocket or I’ll scratch the lens.
