Meet the Boys

Our bit of land in front of the house
is now home to 
three rather boisterous Shetland ponies

First of, lets meet Finnbar, the alpha male
He loves being groomed and is very sweet natured
He licks rather than bites. 
He doesn't like his mane near his ears touched but loves his throat area scratched

Next, Hunter, red and white pony
He was the alpha male before being usurp by Finnbar
He has a bit of an attitude
and he is prone to kick out if he's upset with the other ponies

Lastly, we have little Monty 
He is a bit timid but likes being groomed 
 He love to have his rear end and throat scratched 
He has a lovely long mane and tail.

Duck House 2.0

As part of our spring cleaning, we decided to give the duck house a good spruce up.
Harsh weather and a year of muck from the ducks had left the house
in dire need of total refurbishment

Nothing like a shiny coat of paint to make the old house brand new again.
For the base, we attached a layer of weed suppressant cover.
Hopefully it would the job in keeping the weeds from growing around the house.

Final touches...
The house now has a name!

A not-so-gentle nudge to launch the house into the pond

Open for business
All ducks (and the odd birds) welcome
