Particularly when the weather forecaster’s have plumped for high winds and wet weather blowing in from the east —
Thankfully they would appear to have it wrong. Right from ‘early doors’ when Loki came bounding out of his kennel – it has been brilliant sunshine all the way —
with even a touch of frost first thing.
It didn’t linger long and Loki’s tongue was soon hanging out even more than mine as we made our way across the fields above the village —
with long shadows cast from the sun on my back —
Hasn’t he got a lovely sheen on his coat as he prepares for the winter. He probably benefits from sleeping outdoors in his purpose-built kennel through any weather.
Our favourite walk takes us across the bull’s field. Just as well they will soon be taken indoors for the winter because by the look of that shattered gate they could be arriving at our door without an invitation any time soon.
This fella is probably the smallest of the nine bulls we have billeted around us at the moment but what he lacks in size he makes up for in tricky temperament – typical ‘little man’ syndrome!
