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.

Harvesting is over! The combine was brought home last night after a very testing end to the summer. The planting of next years crops now begins in haste before the ground gets too wet to work. The horses winter beds are down in the stables waiting for them to come in at night as soon as it drops too cold or wet and the logs are being loaded into the log shed ready for the log burner in Meal House and the farm house to keep us all warm. The Jacuzzi comes into its own during the winter months. It's the time I like to use it most. Everyone has suddenly started cooking roast dinners and puddings and the salad bowl is to be found at the back of the cupboard. We still have guests booked in with their horses enjoying the Autumnal colours and changing vista of the Brown Clee Hill and as long as you have your wellies or walking boots there's a host of fabulous walking out there. As we head towards Christmas our rates become such great value so why not grab a weekend away and curl up by that log burner in Meal House or jump in the Jacuzzi and watch the steam rise!
