Be careful what you wish for.......

The whole country has been gripped by the bad weather. I've even just heard on the News that our area is now officially 'cut-off'!

It looks so pretty though when you're on the inside.






The horses are tucked up in their winter rugs and mostly shelter in their field shelters but I've just watched them walk down the field, have a good roll and a shake and then walk back up again. They looked so sweet.

Kizzy took a nifty mouthful of hay from the barrow before I could open the gate.

Esther just wanted me to stop taking photos and get on with feeding them!



We even have icicles dangling from the eaves. I walked up to the village shop earlier and the snow was about 8" deep then and it's been snowing heavily ever since. There were cars abandoned on the steep slope up to the shop and the only vehicles moving about were 4x4s and they were going very, very slowly.



Tinker was whingeing to go out all morning so we decided to grant him his wish and see how long he really wanted to stay out..................







...........that would be 6 steps forward...........then 6 steps back.................................










.................and snuggle down in Mike's cardigan for the rest of the day!
