Interview with the Vampire

Just had to post this photo of Kirov - he's still looking for work after his retiral - and whilst its winter and practice sessions have been a little curtailed at Knockhill - he thought he might try an audtion for a film career. So - the title of the film was 'Interview with the Vampire' and here is his attempt to secure the leading role.

As an aside - he had been lined up to ride for KawaCATi - however, he's been approached - after several very fast practice sessions by DuCATi - so he's still in negotiations with them both - to find the most suitable team -

I reckon Brad Pitt will be 'miffed' at Kirov for his audtion photo - I mean - he does look so much more appealing than little Brad!!!

The Big Thaw!

So the snow is finally thawing. It looks strange, as we've had a great blanket of snow in the garden and on the trees etc., and now its all disappearing. The boys have loved watching the snow, being in it - albeit Altai was rolling in it - and so for these Scottish Siberians - they've had a taste of what it might be like in their natural habitat! Timosha found walking in it odd - as having such long 'tufts' on his feet - they were getting all snowy and he took a step, shook a paw, took a step, shook a paw! It may well be a long time before we see such a significant snow fall again - but we can count ourselves fortunate - as there are areas of the UK which have been much more badly affected - and hopefully the thaw will make its way to each and every one of them -

So - we all look forward to things ahead - and 2010 is a new year, and we are looking forward to it with anticipation. Chantaris Cats - the Siberian Alters - will continue to rule the roost - but with Spring will come new challenges - and we look forward to that -

Take care in this weather - and keep warm!!
