Being on Horse Back

Barn - South Croxton Bridge - BeebySouth CroxtonHaving the bright spring sun high in sky is not the best time to make landscape photographs but it was such a wonderful day that I could happily suck it up and make the best of it.  Today I was called a horse whisperer because I had an encounter with a rather nice horse who let me scratch its nose.  In truth I think it was more interested in whether I had an apple or something else nice to eat.  It shared its enclosure with a donkey who has clearly been too keen on passing treats and was now on a strict donkey food diet, well at least that is what the sign said  by the paddock.  He didn’t look too chuffed about it all.

So anybody who knows east Leicestershire around South Croxton will know that it is not really part of Charnwood, the hills that can be seen in the background of the photographs but that isn’t the case as far as the local government boundaries are concerned so it has been included in the Playground of the Midlands project.   Walking around in the bright spring sun I have to say I couldn’t care less – it was just nice to be out in the fine weather and not have a care in the world – well sort of.

Pip pip – now where is the after sun scream!
