Scaling the scales

Spring has definitely been in the air today, in fact it felt more like early summer.  The boys were all posing and posturing to each other.  There was also a bit of flirting with the weanling's too.

Whilst I was out with the camera taking some knitwear shots I couldn't resist taking these two of Gianmarco's Masterpiece and Loki strutting their stuff.

I did a bit of weighing today to, the weanlings haven't been weighed for a little while so were over due a weight check.  I can only manage the smallest few as weighing involves lifting them onto the bathroom scales; no I don't take them to the bathroom before you get any idea's, the scales go outside! 

Scales will be the first thing I want to buy when we find a permanent home, I've been drooling over them for a couple of years now but we just don't have anywhere to put them here.

Anyway I'm pleased to say that there were only four that I could actually manage to lift and all had gained nicely.  The youngest Freyja is obviously taking after the rest of her family as I couldn't actually lift her, you can certainly tell she carries the Blossom (her grandma) gene.
