But there was a glimmer of hope today, Roller and Dragon provided their very own expression of hope, a little ray of sunshine that Spring may arrive eventually.
Yes folks, they have both decided it's time to start shedding their winter coats :-) Hooray for that! FH is looking forward to months of shedding out Roller's thick duvet coat, he starts in February and we're still going in June ready for him to regrow in August.
So there you have it folks the Muleteers have declared that Spring must be on the way so let's hope Mother Nature is listening. The Mini? Well The Mini is sensibly hanging on to his woolies for a while yet, he takes after the donkey side of the family on this one and will hold on to his coat until it's at least a balmy 20 C!
Hope all of our friends are surviving this awful weather, we have at least three more days on the way. We're grateful for our warm beds, roof over our heads and food on demand. FH is grateful to be growing fast but still mobile and happily tending her Muleteer Masters :-)
Sending you soggy snuffles and windswept neighbrays for a safe week ahead.
