After a reasonably pleasant and mostly clear-skied autumn, the most miserable season of the year has set in. The house is cold and leaking and there's not enough light to take pictures of anything really. Adhara needed clipping today and I could barely see what I was doing. Winter means four months of rain and dark and sliding around paddocks that have become a perpetual quagmire to check on saturated and mud-plastered birds and alpacas, and no eggs to hatch or cria to be born.
I have been making some festive jingle collars, which are a bit more cheerful than the weather, and useful for locating dogs on miserable winter evenings. They're available in any number of combinations of leather, stitching, and bell colours. More information on the Etsy page.
