A pleasing walk

I've decided it's not wise to take Tilly to the park for the next two or three weeks and just go on short walks where there's less chance of meeting other dogs and then it should be just the occasional dog on lead out on their walk and easier to avoid. The weather wasn't great  yesterday, noticeably cooler and rather dreary but at least the early morning rain had stopped. I decided I would take Tilly to see the horse and if he was in his field I would give him a small apple.

I've been hearing the honking of geese flying south for the winter for the past few days  but yesterday as I had my point and shoot camera with me while out with Tilly I just about managed to get a few although not very good photos which I was rather pleased about. I believe the geese fly at over thirty miles an hour and I'm always happy if I can snap a few photos. I do see and hear the geese migrating every year although they might be a little earlier this year with the sudden change in the weather.




There he is, Mister horse and he comes up to the fence to have his treat and a stroke of his nose but unfortunately Tilly is becoming a little jealous of the attention he receives and gives a little bark. It was lovely to see him in his smart new coat, I was wearing mine too but mine's not new or smart like his. I've bought a new coat for Tilly but she can wear her new coat when it's cold or raining.

    1. You do hear the geese before you see them, they honk very loudly. Such a drop in temperatures since this time last week.

    1. It's clever how the geese arrange to fly together in groups and form their V shape, there's so much about nature we don't understand. I'm not sure why they honk so loudly as they fly either.

    How lucky are you to see the migrating geese - something very nice about seeing them. How about giving Tilly a treat when you meet the horse, she might not be so jealous then, and it would keep her busy when you're chatting with the horse....a thought that's all 🤔

    1. I always like to see the geese, many groups of them fly overhead over a week or two. I think Tilly does get jealous and yes that’s a good idea, I’ll give her a treat so she doesn’t feel left out.

  5. I think it's very wise to take shorter walks near home with Tilly for the time being, you don't want those unwelcome advances from all those amorous doggies, haha. Awww, the horse is lovely, he must enjoy your visits, especially if apples are involved. We get loads of geese flying over here too, there's always that one lone little honk a few minutes after the majority have passed by, I do hope it manages to catch up!

    1. We certainly don’t want any unwanted advances from amorous males. I still see Tilly as a youngster so she’s far too young for that hanky panky :) I’ve always wondered how the geese communicate and decide when it’s the best time to fly, which route to take and then decide who’s going to be the leader and as you say, I hope they wait for the stragglers to catch up.
