Still moored at Dorney and the sun is still rather warm
Mrs Swan takes all eight youngsters out for a stroll
A lovely setting over the river from the deck
I went with Sue to the farm where she promises me I'll get the best eggs ... ever ... and we shall see ponies!
I'd had my back to Sue as I was stroking the muzzles of the two Shetland Ponies at the rear of the stables and Sue startled me as I turned around!
Two sisters run this pony sanctuary and I can tell you that these rescue ponies have the best life, the bedding in the stalls is about 2" deep and there are no horse droppings visible anywhere and no steaming mound of the stuff either!
The whole place is immaculate.
There is sometimes a German Shepherd dog at the farm so Sue told her collies Meg and Penny to lie down and stay outside the second gate into the property but Meg came to find her, ears down, knowing that she shouldn't, but worried that Mum had been gone too long. Penny had moved too, but only across the track to lie in the shade.
The Swan family came avisiting!
6:30 and the temperature is about 24°c but at last a bit of shade is reaching 'our' patch ... time to light the bbq
Mr and Mrs Greylag-Goose taking an evening stroll with their two offspring.
... and there we are!
