Tugford Farm

Newly born lambs have arrived in Tugford. Wyns cousin has started his first batch of lambing and the new borns are out in the fields enjoying the unusual warm weather with their mothers.

We start lambing late March, so some time yet for us.

All the animals are fine. The hunt horses are in fine fettle and going well. The polo ponies are enjoying their winter break wrapped up in their winter rugs and tucking into plenty of haylage. Widget and Big Bill, the terriers, are of course fine, busy running the farm as usual. Widget is back on house arrest because the builders are back working down the road and as before we are aware they are not employed to entertain Widget!

Wyns gun dog Anna is at her fittest now having to put in at least a couple of days a week picking up. She loves it but at the end of the month the shooting season comes to an end and her holidays start.

Check out the out of season prices for the cottages and churchwarden cottage, our new Ludlow town house (www.churchwardencottage.com). Grab a bargain and come and see us all.

What a great weekend we had with a fantastic family full of fun, adults and children alike. The weather was pretty good and enabled the children to play with Widget and our new puppy 'Tipsy' in the garden. It was great as the puppy just played or slept! As I type she's trying to help! The children also had lots of fun in the Jacuzzi Hot Tub occasionally letting their parents in. Have a look at some of the smiling faces with Widget and Tipsy on the main blog page. Farming news: We have fields full of ewes and 'getting larger everyday' lambs. The rain which was so desperately needed arrived and has given everything a boost so the grass is now growing well. Talking to neighbouring farmers when we were herding their two cows, which had escaped onto our top field, the general feeling was that the spring crops will definitely have been affected by the lack of rain at the crucial time of planting but that's farming for you so the ever changing challenges keep coming.
