#1 here. As Sei-Chan (or rather "Thei-Chan") so rightly predicted, there is a bit of a blog hijack going on as I am in Nova Scotia, visiting Percheron breeders here.
I left Prince Edward Island yesterday morning via the Confederation Bridge:
This marvel of engineering is the longest bridge to cross icy waters in the world. It is 12.9km (that's 8 miles) long and links the Island to New Brunswick. Construction took four years and cost over C$1 billion.
I was heading for the Annapolis Valley, a beautiful part of Nova Scotia with a rich history and some of the best breeders of Percherons in the Maritimes. My first stop was at Cambridge Percherons, owned by David Logie who also happens to be President of the Canadian Percheron Association. I won't bore you with a lot of horse talk but here are a couple of photos.
Please meet King's Audry, who travelled to Nova Scotia from the American Midwest in February:
And this handsome guy is called King. He and Audry have the same sire (father), a famous stallion called Pleasant View King
I am visiting two more breeders today so the possibility of more photos is high. And then, on Sunday, I am getting together with a couple of mystery blogging friends! Can you guess who they might be?
I shall leave you with some photos fresh in from Poupounette Central of some window whiffies by...
And Da Beebs (safely inside the mosquito netting!):
PS: You all know how traumatic it is when Da Beebs gets out on one of his Houbibi jaunts. Well, imagine what happened with our dear Aby friend Isis (she was our Sen-Chan's very special girl) who got out and stayed out for almost two weeks! Yesterday, she finally came home and you can imagine the relief of her mum, Jacquie. Welcome home, Isis!
Isis doesn't blog anymore but she can be found on FaceBook at Lovelynx Abyssinians.
