Toe nails and top knots

It has been a glorious day today, for more than one reason, but more on that in a day or two, Paul has sworn me to secrecy!

Following on from the harrowing that Paul and my brother Colin did at the weekend there was some clearing required of the dead grass and 'bits' that has been pulled round the field.  This was a slightly larger job than we anticipated.  In fact I think the field may need another harrow in a day or two!

I had noticed that some of the boys were in need of a little pedicure and some of them also needed a little trim around the eyes so that they could see.

Golden Guinea was first and seemed greatful for his little hair cut, he can now keep an eye on the chickens and kittens much easier.

Then it was the turn of the other big boys, Legend was a bit of a pest as usual, he doesn't mind the hair cut bit but isn't keep on the toe nails.  Even Loki was being a little naughty today and he is usually as good as gold.  There must have been something in the air.

Tomorrow is the turn of the littlies, as you can see from this shot Paul took of Pearson this evening he is in great need of a little trim, as is Casiphia.

Paul has managed to do a lot of the shop updates today, I didn't have the heart to tell him I have another 10 items to wash, label and photograph which will need uploading too!

Another harrowing experience then Debbie! Lovely photo, and you are right, some of the guys and gals do have to have a fringe trim around this time of year. Before we cut Fergus's fringe he used to run towards us at an angle using his right eye because he couldn't see out of his left one! Take care. Shirley & Robbie
