I am expecting lots of cats and dogs (particularly Tara’s gorgeous hound) this week. And had we been at home then it would almost certainly been my picture too. Either #Fatcat, Cheeky Dog, or Bob the grumpy cat. But since we are away I have been able to feature something else. And not something that I photographed, but that Ellie photographed when she went for a walk last week.
Our French Gite is at the end of a lane, and passes by some farm buildings, piles of logs and hay bales. And just before you reach our garden and the house there is a field with horses in it. One of them a very grumpy Shetland pony, the other a very friendly donkey.
We shall miss them when we have gone.
But not the horse flies. Have you ever seen a horse fly up close? They are terrifying.
And a bit too quick to photograph, thankfully.
Unlike this fella who seems to be rather enjoying the attention
And sugar lumps
