    Old Soldier:


    Spare a thought for this old fella. He is deaf and almost blind* and as a result almost everything comes as a surprise to him... He can't be trusted off the lead any more, he'd probably get lost and wouldn't hear you calling.

        You need to be careful

        That dog leads a double life... he's lost his lead on your blog AND the feet are missing too... how did he find his way back ?

            Last ride of the day:

            February dusk. The rain cloud is so low that its turned to a day-long fog. The floodlights are on and a lone rider is practising her moves in the growing gloom...

              The Waiting Game:


              No, I don't know what was going on here, but I spotted this today. I couldn't resist grabbing Dog and Owner catching forty winks.



              This was the 70-300 near the long end with IS switched off (my new approach)...

                I wonder what these are. They appeared outside the barn over Christmas Holidays. Could they be Martians?

                Maybe we have got the whole Martian Threat thing completely out of perspective.... They don't look that dangerous. Some of them look positively home made.

                Pete DH Nick here says "they were originally Fertilizer Containers, now converted to "Grain Feeders" for Pheasants ! the legs are painted with Creosote because they are pushed into the ground [Elf & Safety 4 Pheasants) in the feeding areas, holes are punched in the bottom and the Pheasants bang their heads knocking out more grain

                We have both loved looking through your accounts here. Nick loved the Allen Sythe and fell about laffing telling me "when I was a kid I used one of these and because I was so small IT threw me about all over it, when it hit a lump in the ground the big wheels bounced up taking me thro the air ..."

                We have to ask are you sure the "HAY" in the barn is Hay? it looks more like wheatstraw used for bedding ! the Rope over the gate, is to attach to the horses head collar [worn in the field] to lead the horse back home.

                Its never a good idea to jump on a horse in a field, it may have a severe back problem, and throw you off as soon as it feels weight on its back! I always run my hand over a horses back and legs to check all OK before I brush then for saddling up!

                A request for a nice horse head, eyes and ears down to the muzzle ! You can tell a lot from a horses muzzle, eyes and ears !

                Your Reportage reminds us both the Jack Hargraves on Sunday mornings in "Out of Town" he was always scratching about barns and sheds and fields ...

                THANKS ! Keep going we are loving it ! and really do appreciate your time and hints about lenses ... we just bought three last week but none for the two years before that ...

                  Oooh, as an ex farm lad I do hope it was hay, but you might be right. They have both hay and straw here for the horses.

                  As to good old Jack Hargraves scratching about barns and sheds.. well yes, that does sound a bit like me. I was in that barn today. (Aah the smells: hay, straw, diesel all mixed together. Takes me back....)

                    Great to see "Down the Lane" back Pete. I've missed your insightful shots lately. I wonder if there is a story behind that number plate? 737 is an aeroplane and MRM is mechanically recovered meat. Could it belong to a pilot who has retrained as a butcher?

                    Thanks for sharing.

                      That doesn't look particularly comfortable

                        I think the owner fell asleep waiting for the dog to wake up, I suspect the dog is dozing, waiting for the owner to wake up. Let's hope the Landrover handbrake is on, eh?

                          I'm off on me holidays!



                          It's that time of year, the horses get their amusing fly hats :-)

                          Me - using the 70-300 at the long end! And it's not bad actually

                              Excellent Pete.
                              The 70-300 is just so good for a "budget" lens. I see yours has even got a firmware update that makes it produce a sample swatch of material in case you want to make your own hat.

                              Thanks for sharing.

                                The horse doesn't seem to mind, it's still got a mouthfull of food. Great observation again.
