Today I concentrated my efforts on the cottage. I finished claying the roof - a bit of a tedious job but well worth the effort. Tomorrow I can hit it with some paint.
The windows - front and side - are in!
Lean-to roof is finished and painted - not attached!
Corrugated iron roof painted but not yet attached.
So that's my news on the miniatures front. But I also have other exciting stuff happening. A veterinarian nurse friend of mine breeds the most beautiful Tibetan Mastiffs and she has a female who is obviously not into motherhood. Had a litter of pups - had a lot of hormonal issues and was totally disinterested in her beautiful pups, although she did eventually manage to wean them! The short story is that Nuba (the mastiff) has been offered to me - like a rescue dog really!! And so she will be joining us on Friday. Jessica and I are both very excited and hope that she will settle in well here.
Nuba is the smallest of the mastiffs! She only weighs in at 40 something kilos, as opposed to all the others that weigh in at 80 plus! She is an absolute sweetie.
