    Keeper of the hens

    We had an amazing walk this morning, it was so beautiful!

    Photobucket

    The sun was lovely but not too warm, the sky was bright blue and the clouds were lovely and fluffy.

    Photobucket

    The walk up to the moor always takes quite a while

    Photobucket

    And by the time we get there we're already tired!

    Photobucket

    But Kasper still has enough energy to race about like a loon :smile:

    Photobucket

    The colours on the moor are just stunning and such a contrast to the sky

    Photobucket

    I have loads of photos like this, it's hard to choose my favourites!!

    Photobucket

    Spot the dog! (hint: you can only see his tail tip!)

    Photobucket

    I love this picture :heartsabove:

    Photobucket

    As we were walking along a female pheasant did the danger call and launched into the air - I thought it was gonna hit our heads!! - and the dog went to investigate (he is watching it fly away :smile: )

    Photobucket

    Heading back down...

    Photobucket

    On the way home Kasper got to quench his thirst

    Photobucket

    It was a gorgeous walk and has tired us all out!! Sorry there are so many photos, I did try cut some out :rolling:

    So, the weather has gone from 19*c back to snowing...not that I really mind, it just seems very strange!

    We walked Kasper to the viaduct this morning as anywhere else might have been a bit treacherous!

    Photobucket

    He enjoyed the snow being back!

    Photobucket

    The trees looked awesome as the wind had blasted all the snow to one side

    Photobucket

    Photobucket

    The viaduct was very pretty and there were some awesome views

    Photobucket

    Towards the farm house:

    Photobucket

    And reservoir:

    Photobucket

    Oddly enough the viaduct had no snow on?!

    Photobucket

    It was really windy today, so this is Kasper sniffing the wind that's blasting him in the face!

    Photobucket
    Tired and happy :)

    We built a mini snowman too! :smile:

    Photobucket

    The old school looked very picturesque

    Photobucket

    Kasper got chance to very politely say hello to a tiny Bichon Frise-type dog and a young GSD pup

    Photobucket

    A blanket of snow!

    The best part about walking on a day like that is the getting back home again and sitting down in front of the fire with a nice hot drink. Except I suppose you have to dry Kasper off first, give him a drink, then dry yourself, curse the hot-aches in your fingers, step in a puddle from where snow dropped off your wellies, then realise you forgot to go to the shop for a loaf so have to coat up again. Oh well, soon be summer!!!

    :face-smile:

    It was a bit of a nightmare because I don't have any wellies at the moment! My others had huge holes in so we chucked 'em and assumed we wouldn't need any over summer :laugh:

    It's not too bad...get in, dry Kasper, get him a drink and his breakfast, put the fire on so he can lay next to it, and THEN sort ourselves out!! :rolling:

    Keeper of the hens

    We went to Harden Moor again today, we haven't been for weeks and after today I don't think we'll be going again!!

    To start off with the dog was pulling like crazy on the narrow path that leads to the 60mph road, which was very irritating, especially as he rarely pulls these days. Then, as we were walking up the moor, HE FOUND A LAMB'S HEAD!! :ack2:

    How weird is that?! It was just on top of a bush on the footpath!! We thought about getting it off him, then decided it wasn't worth the effort so let him eat it as a free breakfast. We sat in the sun for 15 whilst he ate his meal, and he did very good and didn't act at all resource guardy, despite the fact it's such a high value item, he was on a lead, and we were sat by him! :smile:

    There were sheep two fields over with a few lambs, but none closer, so who knows what got the lamb...fox, someone's dog?!

    And then to top it all off it was incredibly muddy, despite the dry weather!

    Photobucket

    This was the footpath where the head was found

    Photobucket

    Because we were out quite early it was nice and sunny but there was no real heat to it yet

    Photobucket

    Exploring :smile:

    Photobucket

    "I'm coming!!"

    Photobucket

    View from the top

    Photobucket

    Searching for more lamb haha! We actually did come across the legs on the moor itself, about ten minutes from the head...Kasper ran straight over them and didn't notice thankfully, as I think a head is enough for one day!!

    Photobucket

    Fluffy clouds

    Photobucket

    And these two are of him posing and looking very beautiful ;)

    Photobucket

    Photobucket

    He has a lamb's head in the next two, so if you're icky about meat don't look!

    It wasn't a new kill but it was still fairly fresh, maybe a few days old?

    Photobucket

    Om nom nom! I know dog owners' buy pig heads to feed their dogs, we got a lamb head for free!

    Yeuk! What a horrible thing to come across. I'd have been really grossed out by that, but the weather on the moor looked lovely and Kasper seemed to enjoy it even if you didn't!!

    Keeper of the hens

    It was just weird, it looked like such a clean cut I didn't understand what animal could do that?! I was really impressed with how Kasper did with it, and found it funny that Lyle was the one who was grossed out by it :tooth:

    The weather was gorgeous. Our one and only sunny day, it was lovely! Today's half sunny, half rainy...

    Do you think it could've been killed by thugs?

    We thought that, but then when we found the legs sinned of all meat on the moor guessed it must've been a dog or fox...the moor is in the middle of nowhere too.

    I just wondered if someone had killed the lamb and then other animals had come along at a later time and started eating it. We'll never know.
