    I thought you might like to see pictures of my chooks now that the snow has gone!!
    The first pic is of Mairi-Ann, she was meant to be a cream leg bar??? I think she is more like a wyandotte cross, what do you think??
    She lays lovely blue eggs though!!

    Then Mairi-Ann and her friends Meg (marans) and Eleanor (welsummer)

    And the new run!! The chalet looking thing is actually the shed where i keep the animals feed, the hens coop is actually under the shelter bit with the nesting boxes sticking out at the back for easy access!!

    And then the ponies!! I actually sold the foal (Dooska) and took her to her new home on Saturday.
    She is the dun coloured one and her mum Mary is Grey.

    I love your ponies! What are they? I saw a pic of a Dartmoor once and that is sort of what it looked like but I wasn't sure... ?

    Btw: I love Dooska! I like the name because it is very universal! She is also gorgeous! [​IMG]

    If Mairi-Ann lays blue eggs, wouldn't she be an EE? [​IMG]
