Tama-Chan: Since we had a snuggle picture included in Thursday's post, we decided that we could allow some space to #1 to post some pictures that she took yesterday and which do not involve us (gulp!). That being said, before handing over the keyboard to her, just one itty, bitty little shot of me this morning, basking on the back of the sofa, with Tommy curled up behind me:
#1: I wanted to share with you some picture from yesterday afternoon, when I had the opportunity to spend some time with a group of people who were clearing tree trunks and branches from one of our local woods using Percheron horses, and a couple of donkeys.
In most cases, this type of work is done using heavy vehicles such as tractors which leave huge grooves on the forest floor and demolish most things in their path. Horses cause no damage and can get into places that vehicles can't, plus the sight of them at work is enough to take your breath away:
Of course, the Percherons are incredibly powerful and handsome, but the donkeys were working just as hard!
By mid-afternoon, the pile of wood was already quite impressive!
It was a beautiful, sunny spring day, and a real treat for all those who were there!
