I’m home again and heading to bed and a sound night’s sleep before work tomorrow hoping my mobile ‘phone issue will be sorted out by the time I wake.
I had a quick look at some photos taken over the last couple of days. Babush is the Leonberger/St Bernard cross I met at Wicken Fen on Thursday. Adorable or what?
On my walk to and from Wicken I had seen horses. Not the usual kind of horses of varied sizes and shades, but a proper herd; distinctive, beautiful. They watched me from a distance but didn’t approach.
But when I walked by the field yesterday it was a different story. Several came up to the fence and made it clear a nose rub was very welcome.
They were already getting attention from a man and his dog. The dog, a gorgeous black Labrador called Fagin because he picks pockets, then got a lot of attention from me. He had been swimming and was wet, his coat waving slightly as it dried.
It turns out he is good friends with the horses and will even play tug-of-war with four of them.
