The weekend approaches...!

As the long Easter weekend approaches we are preparing for a weekend in Snowdonia. I'm going to stick a big bale of hay in the field for the horses and let them get on with it while we have some fun in the mountains. The change this year is that my mother has agreed to look after our older dog (Artie) for the weekend, as these walks are getting a bit much for him.

Artie has done well so far..he's conquered 3 different routes up Snowdon (almost 4, but we had to turn back down the Watkin Path very close to the summit as one of our other dogs was struggling with the cold!), breezed Cnicht, and scrabbled up Moel Hebog in some pretty horrendous wind and rain as well as numerous other mountain walks. He's crammed in our backpacking tent, and put up with one of our terriers (Snowy) giving him a hard time.

Although I feel guilty leaving the old boy behind, I know this is definitely the best thing for him as he trundles into old age. He's a sweetheart, and he's going to have a great weekend being spoiled by mum, while we get blown off the Glyders and drenched along the way I'm sure.

I'm looking forward to it.

Have a great Easter all!
