Looking towards ST Micheal's Mount from Ednovean farm garden yesterday

The days grow shorter now with the unwelcome meeting of the dawn into my day but sometimes, when the rossie light from the east reflects across the sky on to Mounts Bay it's magical and worth the early morning just to see St Micheal's Mount tinged with pink and the Clock tower of Perranuthnoe's church touched by the golden light.

The golden light hitting the church clock

If we do not have guests then it is always tempting to linger for a moment watching the young horses scampering around the older ones with mischievous intent. They are generally well tolerated by the old mares though as they watch the antics with good natured tolerance.

Sorry for the blurry photo but is shows Amie in super bug mode!

Dolly, last years foal, got an early Christmas present in view of the recent weather - her very own mack otherwise know as a New Zealand rug

Well perhaps chewing the rope is more interesting than having your photo taken after all
