There have been ravens at the Tower of London for hundreds of years. Legend has it that if the ravens leave, the tower and the city will fall (I believe their wings are clipped so they can’t leave now). The Ravenmaster is the person who has responsibility for the welfare of the ravens. The current post holder has written a book about it although I’ve yet to read it.

39 Colts | 41 Fillies

LOVE the name! I am not responsible if he vanishes. That fence has always been broken.

Amazed both names were available. Nice colts. :slight_smile:

Also surprised the names weren’t taken. Love Outfoxed.

Golden Knight might find another broken fence. You really should get those looked at.

@Shelbie - the maintenance man’s got a long list of fences that need fixing :wink:

Today is a filly day. Last year I think we only had one homebred Sionnach filly but lots of colts, this year is the complete opposite with mostly fillies.
