Snug As Bugs In Rugs..

It was murky on our little hill today....a sure sign winter is just around the corner. So just in time, everyone is in thier new houses and area for the winter including Scrappy the sheep, who is Ben our big shires buddy and flat mate. Scrappy thinks he is a horse and runs and grazes with the herd all year. The two naughty Shetlands are Axle and Rusty and they are right pickles but too cute for words! We also have the horses, Spotty, Blue and Aries. We can't thank our fundraising group and our iPhone fundraisers enough for working so hard to make this little dream come true for us. They are all snug for winter thanks to you x P.S The SKY T.V and beer fridge are still on order for Ben the shire *winks*
