A Mule's Eye View!
Ah a lovely sunny day and what better thing to do than look at the view?
So us Muleteers set about trying to decide what the best views of the day were?
First we decided on the view of fresh grass…. Mmmm yummy!
Do you like my Autumn highlight dapples? I'm testing them out before asking FH to bring in the Mule Stylist.... she laughed at me!
We are particulraly interested in the lovely long grass in our field next door….. when are we allowed to try that FH?
Boo! Apparently not for a while as there are acorns on the ground. Acorns is poisonous to us Muleteers so we’re not allowed in in case we hoover them up…. us sensible long ears wouldn’t (honest) but that Roller might do….. so we’re gonna let our friendly local squirrels and jays take them for their winter snacks and then it’ll be safe for us.
There are some other mighty fine views that I need to show you too.
Here is the view through the gate up to the moor. I’m hoping to carry FH up there again soon, it’s beautiful at this time of year!
Then there’s the view across the hill, there used to be an ancient windmill up there and the ruins are still visible. It is SO unfair though as no equines allowed…. Grrr! If it says footpath surely that also means hoofpath?
Being a bit of a busy body I do like to keep an eye on the neigh-bours. Being a weekend there are lots of things going on. Humans being taken for a walk by canines, humans being carried by horses, humans going for drives in metal mules, sheep herding dogs and cattle giving the farmer a run for his money….. come to think of it us animals sure do keep you humans entertained don’t we?
I also quite like the view of my mini friends, don’t tell noone but I am quite fond of them and they are well really cute aren’t they? Please keep this a secret though….. folks might think I’ve gone soft or something and I don’t want that…..
When you look at the finery of little Roller’s winter coat and the cuteness of The Mini’s ears it’s hard not to enjoy the view isn’t it?
Roller’s favourite view was the view of the open store room….. dumdedum…. Just having a little look inside….. mmmm tasty……. I’m so small no one will see ;-)
FH come quick Roller's being all determined to get his own way again.....
Queen Catanian is busy with her own favourite view – of her throne, nothing like a warm lap to sink in to and relax on while being scratched and petted!
One of my favourite views though is the view of the delicious hazel branches on the other side of the fence, this is one of my favourite treats but they are just out of reach. I tried standing on my hoofytips but to no avail….
But then what’s this? Oh My Mule! This view looks GOOD enough to eat.
Yes, yes, yes FH. Fetch the branches here….. a little closer…..
Heaven! The best view is of a tasty morsel to eat with some sunshine and company thrown in for good measure.
While we were busy munching I heard FH whisper something about the finest view in the world…. Apparently it has something to do with her darling Muleteers happy together in the sunshine blissfully enjoying the simple things in life.
Sometimes the best view in the world is the one that is right there in front of you if you look at it in the right way J
Have a wonderful weekend Muleteers! And tell us what’s the view that makes you smile?
