Autumn in all her glory surrounds the inn.
Hobo, our inn kitty. She's never met a stranger, just a friend she's never seen before.
Kelly, our rescue dog. She appears to be a corgi-collie mix.
Not the world's best picture but this is Tommy, on the left, and Inspector Dee Morse on the right. Tommy is a 14h Morgan-draft cross and little Inspector is (obviously!) a miniature horse. She's about 38".
