The youngsters (Bombero, Milano, Nicobar and Rosa) were watching my mucking out this morning, they felt I should be moving faster and they felt their supervising duties were soooo tiring!

Bit grey down at the reserve today but there were a few squirrels about, in various shades. We spotted "Stumpy" the short tailed squirrel, last month he had an obviously over grown canine tooth but it had broken off and he seemed to have quite a swelling under his chin from an abscess. He was chomping his way through the hazelnuts and seemed bright despite it.

We went to the zoo yesterday to see the Tapir that was born on New Years Eve, now in my opinion, there is nothing as cute as a baby Tapir - I expect the love child of Arrayan and Stela to look just like this! The Rhinos were in their heated pool looking very content while a (wild) very fluffy grey squirrel could not have looked more cold and miserable. Having seen the Sea Eagles up close I am even more determined to take a trip out to see them on the Isle of Mull this year.

Mojito has settled in to his new home, learning very quickly that Andrew makes the most amazing haylage and it is delivered to a hungry Criollo's door in a blue wheelie bin. He checks that it has all been emptied out onto his floor and he hasn't been shortchanged.

Our snow is starting to look a bit hard up but we managed to tip toe Arrayan over the ice and get him out for a roll today. The internet and phone have been off since Thursday and today the power is off while we get new poles, I had been rather naive about the amount of big holes getting dug in the foals first paddock, not ideal. My keyboard is now a truly disgusting mix of Starbucks cake crumbs and Kentucky Fried Kitten grease, I can barely bring myself to touch it! We are childishly amusing ourselves with our coffee orders...
These damn birds are fooling me at every turn this year, I thought last night would be the night to get glorious photos, clear sky, moon, snow and loads and loads of starlings but not quite, they murmured just tantalisingly out of reach behind the farm buildings.
