No pictures I'm afraid but one to be aware of or laugh at...
When we came up through Alrewas yesterday there was a Canaltime watering but getting involved with the big old horse that lives in the field at the back of the water point. It seems that said horse had leaned over the fence and eaten the cork ball off the key ring left in the water-point. Rachel said the boaters were trying to retrieve the cord from his mouth !!
Rachel helped by offering the horse some tasty grass as a desert which allowed the boaters to recover what was left of the cord/cork ball. He was also taking a drink from the spray of a less than perfect fitting hose....
I suspect this is this horses party trick and they were not the first but the size of him was intimidating the luckless boaters.
All part of the holiday story I expect !
