Here are some photos of the Black Swans at Dawlish yesterday evening. Julia.

This Seal photo was taken at Weymouth Sea Life Center. Rose W’canton.

This is flatform mill I think, (sure the forum ladies will correct me if I am wrong) from the haywain. FF (Rose)

We finally put Willow and Gypsy in the area that we made for them next to the Sheep. As of yet we have had no problems or calling out by either Willow or Lady. Touch wood we may be lucky. It was very easy to get them in to the area, they followed their feed bowls. I thought that we may have had a little bit of a problem as not many animals like to go into a dark area, and we had to take them through our main barn that when you first enter is quite dark. The food in front of them was the enticement. Once they had gone a little way into the barn it lightens up with the large doorways. The area is very large for two Fillies, big enough to have a kick and a buck. We will let them out into a larger area for a few hours every other day or so, but not until we are sure that they have settled in their new surroundings.

We were going to try to leave the Fillies in the large stable that we made for the Mares, once that they had Foaled, but on second thoughts if we had needed the new stable and the Fillies had not wanted to go in to the area we had made for them, it would have meant more work. We weren’t to know that it was going to be as easy as it was. At least now as soon as Emmi has Foaled she will have a lot more room if she need to stay stabled because of bad weather.

Our Mare in Ireland was covered by the Stallion today. A nice early covering, that if the mating was successful will produce a Foal in the first couple of week of 2009. We will need to wait a few week for the Mare to be scanned to see if the mating was successful. We are crossing our fingers. Being one the first few matings that the Stallion has done this year, he will be very high in his fertility, so we are hopeful. There are two downsides of early season matings, one is the Foal is born and will have the first three months or a little more of cold weather. The other is that the Mare would not be able to get the Spring grass. Both are not disasters. Once the Foal is on its feet we can put a rug on it. The goodness that the are will get out of the Spring grass we can make up with extra feed.

I have just looked outside to see what chance we have of Broadcasting the Moon Eclipse tonight. At the Moment the Sky is very clear. If it stayed like it is I would get up to show it and record it. But the forecast is not very good. I spoke to Aurthur the Amateur Astronomer that I know and he gave me the precise times, some how I have mislaid them. The beginning of the Eclipse starts at about 12.30am but you wont see a lot until about 2.45am until 3.30am

The Three Little Pigs sent in by Elsie
Three Little Pigs went out to dinner one night. The waiter came and took their drink order.

“I would like a Sprite,” said the first little piggy.

“I would like a Coke,” said the second little piggy.

“I want beer, lots and lots of beer,” said the third little piggy.

The drinks were brought out and the waiter took their orders for dinner.

“I want a nice big steak,” said the first piggy.

“I would like the salad plate,” said the second piggy.

“I want beer, lots and lots of beer,” said the third little piggy.

The meals were brought out and a while later the waiter approached the table and asked if the piggies would like any dessert.

“I want a banana split,” said the first piggy.

“I want a root beer float,” said the second piggy.
“I want beer, lots and lots of beer,” exclaimed the third little piggy.

“Pardon me for asking,” said the waiter to the third little piggy, but why have you only ordered beer all evening?”

You’re gonna LOVE this….

The third piggy says –
“Well, somebody has to go ‘Wee, wee, wee, all the way home!
