Good morning all
Managed to get Kizzy to sit still before she started eating the snowdrops.
Loved the photo of Gran with the bullock.
I'm glad Hosta was able to laugh off the comments from the Russians.
Going back to Warhorse. I saw a documentary 'The real Warhorse' which was heartbreaking. Horses and mules drowning in mud. The officers had a handbook on how to shoot the dying horses. When the Lifeguards are on parade the farriers carry axes as a reminder that they had the task of putting horses down.
On a lighter note there was another true documentary called 'Galloping Jack' He was one of the few men who was allowed to bring his horse home and they grew old together on the Isle of Wight. Most of the horses left in France were sold to the French farmers.
