This time last year, I posted about all the changes during 2016. By contrast, 2017 has been pretty “strong & stable” (those in the UK may have heard that phrase once or twice from our PM!)
It has been a stable year in that we have not lost anyone in our flock. We lost Phineas in 2016, Cagney in 2015 & Thomas in 2014, so we would have to go back to 2013 for a loss-free year. Though our flock stood firm, our loyal follower rosebudgie sadly suffered a double tragedy with the loss of the legendary Ian & Marshall – the Sharing Sausages, who are & will continue to be, deeply missed from this blog.
It has been a strong year because we have faced some challenges, in particular Bezukhov’s Extreme Moult Experience, flock introductions & a new home, but have come through them relatively unscathed, ready to face whatever 2018 will throw at us.
Wishing you all a very happy & healthy New Year.
