These ponies are clearly being looked after and well-fed, but they must be feeling the bitter cold.
With a slow thaw in progress we took the puppies to Bakewell for their first experience of shops and people shopping.
It took us ages to get around because everyone wanted to fuss the cute little puppies. This was a very pleasant and sociable activity (puppies are great ‘chick magnets’! ) but the boys enjoyed it too.
Bakewell has a river flowing through and this was the pups first encounter with birds and they were BIG…swans, geese and ducks.
A weir also called a heritage weir, is a small overflow dam used to raise the level of a river or stream. Weirs have been used to create mill ponds in such places. Water flows over the top of a weir, although some weirs have sluice gates releasing water at a level below the top of the weir. The crest of an overflow spillway on a large dam is often called a weir.
