I was woke in the early hours of this morning by the police helicopter which was hovering with its search beam shining in Hartburn. One local family were woken to the news that their young son would not be coming home having had a very nasty car accident.

Events like this really put things into perspective and make you appreciate what you have. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.

On a much brighter note I took the camera out with me this morning, we'd had the first frost of the year so I thought there might be some nice photo opportunities. However the alpacas had either been in the shelter and were frost free or like Loki here had been sun bathing and were just damp.He is enjoying his new vantage point, now the girls are in their winter field her gets a good view of them! He is very much the big macho following commencement of his stud career this summer.

Loki looks a lovely boy, Debbie. We read about that dreadful accident in the paper here today. Take care.
