My return

I apologise for my blogging silence but I have been busy on important 'day job' business for the past few weeks. The force have finally fully utilised my unique skill set by sending me deep undercover. For the past couple of weeks I have been Felicity Maitland, a 14 year old girl attending a mixed grammar school in South Wiltshire, as I investigated a serious tuck shop fraud. Whilst 'on plot' I stumbled across a deeply disturbing underworld of gobstopper dealing and sherbert dip pushing. Whilst infiltrating this mercillous gang I was introduced to and became seriously addicted to Pear Drops.
Naturally I was extricated before things got too out of control and before I was compromised. I then spent a week in Sweet addiction rehab where I was made to eat nothing but sour fruit and mouldy biscuits. Last night I managed to complete my tunnelling and made it across the wire in the early hours of this morning where I have apparently (looking at what I have just typed) drunk too much coffee!

Anyway, enough of that nonsense. This afternoon I have been out photographing members of the mighty Patou Herd. This time though, instead of parading for you the Mighty Show Team I am allowing you access to those members of the herd that haven't quite made it into the team but are nonetheless simply gorgeous.

Here for instance is the heavenly Patou Rosa, a beautiful light brown Columbus girl. Sadly she didn't fall pregnant last summer so will be canoodling with Qjori a little later in the year.

Here is one of the walking haystacks, Patou Scout, as cute as a button and as untidy as a 9 year old boy's bedroom (yes, I can speak with some authority on that subject!).

Another of the mobile hayblobs is Patou Sebulba, devilishly handsome and a complete ringer of his father Herr Clumpmeister.

Next a challenge. Is it possible to be any cuter than sweet little Spirit? I don't think so. Another Clump girl with a great look. Seriously, she is going to be a real stunner when she grows up.

Now for something really special, Patou Reeya, darling of the herd, a Jack of Spades girl due to give birth to a Qjori baby in June. If I could have 100 Reeyas I would be a very happy man! (She has made it into the show team for the Futurity only)

And now for something completely different! Two muppets behind a gate.

Right thats it I'm off, I have to draw a picture of a yellow horse wearing a stetson for strange man who is visiting me this afternoon, otherwise he'll be angry and he'll make me do things I really am not comfortable with.

Note to self: No more coffee.

Maybe you could try decaf!!

Glad to see I'm not the only one with mobile haystacks!

A lovely set of light browns, but I prefer a dark fawn myself ;-)

Looking forward to seeing Reeja in person...after she gets her ribbons of course (do you think that you should check yourelf back in to rehab before the Futurity...don't want you running amok!)

Nice to have you back!

Alpacas are looking good. Spirit really reminds me of our beautiful Clump daughter Erica, she is gorgeous as well.
