Bobbers n` Backers day out

Off to Tinkers Farm with my good friend and manager, Bobbers...

Bobbers takes charge of Mabel

Bobbers treats Mabel to lunch and then totally loses control of her when she attacks a man with a hose and then rolls in the dust.

I`ve never seen Mabel so dirty!!!

Folkington foot bath

Stupid Mabel walked through this sheep foot bath, drank some and promptly threw-up twice. She looked really ill so we phoned the vet and they said to get her to them ASAP. We then had to find out from the farmer what exactly was in the bloody stuff! That was difficult because we didn`t know whose farm it was and when we did find out, their phones were down. We did eventually find out from Jevington Place (huge old manor house) that it was "golden hoof" and had zinc sulphate in it. It was pointed-out that maybe I should walk through said foot bath :o)

Gatwick Airport - train drawing an arc

This is quite impressive. One particular class 442 unit draws a huge arc off of the conductor rail as it pulls out of the station, as you can see here...
