Billiejo, my 50 year old female THB went into hibernation today a little earlier than expected. It seems her natural instinct took over in the last few days. She was totally inactive so it was time for her to be placed in her hibernation box in the garage for her big sleep. Fingers crossed for a safe and successful hibernation. Sleep tight Billiejo. :)

The summers seem to be getting shorter and shorter and the winters come round quicker and quicker every year.

It doesn't seem five minutes since we were putting them all out to enjoy the first rays of spring..... :unsure2:
