Eyes wide shut

Amazing how much progress the pups make in their first three weeks. They now have their eyes open and are starting to focus on their surroundings, as well as  developing hearing and actively walking. 
They had their first play with toys, although their mum kept stealing them for herself!

They had their first non bloodhound visitor last week when Lottie came in to have a sneaky look at them.
Despite them being quite active, they still get vast amounts of sleep!

Eat - sleep - eat

The life of a puppy is blissful.  Eating and sleeping with a lot of kisses and cuddles in between.

The puppies are growing fast and Festive has proved to be a fantastic mum to these little chaps, although now and then She just has to get some sleep!

Spring Shows

We had a wonderful trip to Malvern last week to the West of England ladies Kennel Club (WELKS) Championship show, where we were just thrilled that Jara (Cayman Od  Hadiho Potoka) won the dog CC, and reserve Best of breed, and Baffle (Farlap Baffled) won Res CC under breed specialist Shane O'Keefe.
 As you can see, Baffle is quite unimpressed with the show world and prefers to mix it with the ponies!

Meanwhile the Farlap ponies themselves have been busy at a few spring shows including the National Pony Association and SW Pony Association shows where they had a great run in the ring, including Mabel getting "best Miniature yearling" special award. Here we are posing with a few ribbons!
