Edith - Cute aint she!
As a pikey, it has always been one of my dreams to have a fairground carousel horse. Or a Galloper as the professionals would know it. This is the next best thing. Edith is so-named because it suits her. She arrived yesterday to the Rustic Pikey residence and has settled in very quickly. She is a Mobo Bronco, which is quite a coincidence as my car is a Bronco...

I might restore Edith and paint her Palomino (thanks Dougal-Debs for suggestion) or I might leave her as she is. Not sure yet. These little horses fetch good money ($500 or so on Ebay) but I have fallen in love so Edith is here to stay! Please feel free to post admiring comments. (She works perfectly!)

This is what Rustic Pikey Dad gets up to when Rustic Pikey Mum is out. I think it was supposed to be a nice surprise for her. They are meant to be "Daffodil Warriors". Count them! Note the cat style one at the back. Very random and gets the thumbs up from me. I am almost disappointed that the daffy season is over because there won't be any more for RPD to interfere with on his visit up here next week.

We had 9 ducklings hatch on Sunday 24th May. They're nearly 2 weeks old now and growing fast!
