A blog about farm life, spinning, my yarn dyeing, weaving and markets. I live with my husband on a small farm near Ballarat. I have sheep, mostly English Leicester as well as dogs, ducks, chooks and a cat.

A Walk in the Park
At the weekend David and I decided to take the dogs to the park. They had so much energy and we felt like a walk. Nature was producing some wonderful colour. But once the dogs were out of the car there wasn't much of a chance to see anything.
It didn't take Darwin long to find the muddy pool. For those of you who know Darwin you are not surprised at this.
So this muddy dog expected to get into the wagon to come home.
Further along on our walk we found a pond. Darwin proudly showed off his swimming skills which have much improved and he even left the ducks to swim in peace.
No mater how much I encouraged Mopsy to join Darwin for a swim she was not swimming on such a cold day. Sensible girl.
Today Darwin has gone to visit the lovely grooming lady. He is having a tidy up clip and shampoo. I was a bit embarrassed he was so muddy but no point washing him twice.
