Why did you not ask me for a loan of the Chaos Collies to keep Mollie company ? They would have rounded that 'Mutton on the Hoof ' up nicely indeed :lol:
Fine stuff Doogz and Anne 'n' Mollie.

Superb pictures -especially like the one of the iron posts- get a real feel for how cold and windy it must have been not that long before your walk!

Stunning report on a hill we did on a contrasting but equally beautiful day last May. But to be honest the snow does give yours the edge!

Love the curly horned sheep!

Great report with weather to match.! As mentioned, those fence posts look a bit weather beaten.!!

Going add this to the winter walk list, maybe next weekend.

Cheers.
