I have a busy day ahead of me. However, there is just enough time for a bit of a gossip, 'over the garden gate'.
I met the new neighbour, she is very nice indeed. So are her animals. This is just two of her four beautiful dogs.
As you know, I don't use real names on this blog, so I'll call their owner 'Arabella'. Now let's hope I don't do this by mistake, next time I meet her!
Arabella is an excellent horsewoman, she used to compete at a very high level. Her beloved horses are 'Lady' (for blogging purposes) and
this one is 'Sir'.
I was a little perplexed by small bundles of animal hair which I kept finding in Owl Wood. I began to think that murder was being committed there, on a nightly basis.
Eventually it dawned on me, birds are stealing the hair which comes out when Lady is groomed. I imagine it makes for a very cosy nest lining! Mystery solved, thank goodness.
