he is here




well he is here, who is he you ask? well as a very talented friend is clearly on her way to giving birth to her second child( so exciting) bisou aran!!!!!. we have brought home another member of the family. a (big) percheron Friesian horse. i have named him tolstoy( although no one seems to care for the name). until a month ago he was a stallion, for you horse lovers you know that can spell trouble! I want to tell you how we came about getting him, his bittersweet story. i want to introduce him properly to you, but i am learning him right now and he is learning me and the others so till there is that moment you know the one that says it will all be okay..well till that moment i am going to wait to share tolstoy's (aka captain crunch) story.

the sun is out today and feels lovely!

* update aran gave birth to a little girl miren lili! so wonderful to bring in life full of hopes and possibilties!! oh i am so happy for the happy parents, grandparents and little jon who is now a brother, there was once three but now there is four!!

He is breathtaking. I love the name because I love the writer and the heft (literally and figuratively) of his work. You have me hooked and waiting to learn more about him.

You tease, Nadia! Not showing us his head!! Ah well, I guess I'll have to be patient. He does look beautiful - such a rich, black colour!

I like the name Captain Crunch. Although Black Beauty would be better (but that name's been taken years ago).

Waiting to hear (and see) more about Tolstoy.
