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.
