Hot, smokey days.

001Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Today, mummy was out in the garden when she thought she could smell smoke.  This is unusual as there is a total fire ban within the valley and outlying districts.  She wandered over to the woolshed to see if she could see where the smoke was coming from.  She couldn’t see anything but as you can see from the photos the lingering wisps of smoke and a general haziness.  Due to the lack of rain the grass is not growing so the cows have to have extra rations.  Here is a photo of Oscar and Maisie eating some surplus vegetable.

Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.

    Paws crossed for some good rain soon. It looks like you position yourself just where the oldies sit and perfectly positioned to sniff out anything being eaten. Good move. Honey and Nutty
