The princesses are much more active, with long periods where they are really lively, running about, jumping on each other and Luna, having such a good time. Then they collapse in a heap, preferably squashed up into a pile beside the lavender, outside. They have been enjoying the sunshine and the garden, although obviously it needed some heavy pruning to look its best. They are off to Newmarket in a little while, to the Animal Health Trust, to have their hearing and eyesight checked. Always a bit of an adventure, but the staff are so lovely. Not long now till they go off to their new homes – we had around 80 people through the house last week, so they’ve had plenty of cuddles!
