One of the jobs I had this morning was to go out and take some photos of Mars, Ravelin and Skippy, 3 little foals that are in a paddock alongside Ashley, Zena and Mr Khan. As you can see from the images below, they are very photogenic!

Having been a volunteer to help bottle-feed Ashley from when he was born, it's lovely to be a part of a dedicated team helping to give this little donkey a good start in life. I've got used to seeing Ashley's cute face waiting at the stable door when I arrive to make up his feed in the early mornings when most people are tucked up in bed and fast asleep.
At 3 am the alarm went off and I fought the urge to turn over and go back to sleep, but in my thoughts was little Ashley waiting for his special foal milk. I quickly got dressed and stumbled passed our cat and dog who were totally disorientated by me being up at that time of morning!
I imagined seeing the sun rise at dawn as I drove into work, but instead it was a very dark, cold and windy morning. I didn't see a single sole all the way except a lone badger walking along a country lane minding his own business.
