Tomorrow, September 1, is officially Spring!! Yeehah! Winter hasn’t been all that bad really. We’ve had a couple of nights with wet flurries but no huge dump of snow. Temperatures haven’t been icy cold either. In fact, Winter has been pretty mild. It’s just that it has seemed looooooong.

Zeph and Zsa Zsa are spending more time outdoors. When it’s cold, you’ll find Zsa Zsa, in particular, under a fleecy blanket or two or Zeph in front of the fire. The last couple of weeks though, the days have been so sunny and bright – Zeph has been sunbaking during the day, lying on his pet bed outside in the sunshine. Zsa Zsa spends her days chasing butterflies and sniffing the cheery daffodils that are popping up all over the place.

The horses are already shedding their winter coats. When I groom Saffy, tufts of blonde hair fly around and all the horses are enjoying morning sleeps in the sun. Every time I look at Saffy, she has a ray of sunlight shining down on her. Spring favours such a pretty horse angel.


Spring shines down on sweet Saffy!


The dogs are spending more time outdoors.


Cheery yellow Daffodils are springing up all over the property.
