Good Morning Readers,
Hope you are all well........ today the weather is sunny with a bit of cloud here in my little corner of Cornwall, and the leaves are all falling from my trees, even though it is sunny you can still feel Autumn is in the air...... and I must admit my most favorite season, I just love the crispness in the air and the most amazing  colour tones...... well this morning I went up the yard as usual, not planning to stay to long.....well you now what they say about the best laid plans....... well that was true today, got up the yard to find that both my horse Ace and my friends horse Whisper, had trashed the fencing that we had put up........ and were happily munching in the part of the field they should not have been I have always been told to make things visual to a horse, and as ALL horse owners now what scares there horse the most , no not huge lorries or loud noises......carrier bags yep you got it carrier bags, you could be out on a hack and pass a multitude of obstacles, and most horses would not bat an eyelid, but a carrier bag in a bush, well that's the scariest thing ever....... so once we had fixed the fencing, we tied carrier bags to the top rung of electric fencing, not sure if it will work, we will no tomorrow, but it does look quite funny, as all you can see along the middle of our field are flapping carrier bags...... when we told the owner Anne, what we had done she held her head in her hands... Can't see why..... but rest assured Anne that carrier bags are not staying as we have purchased the fittings to electrify the fence........ today I am joining the with the fun over on christmascardchallenges and my Design is below, the challenge is to use something new, and just in time, my New Nellie Snedden Christmas Embossing fold arrived.
