British Summer Time

The sun has shone and all our new baby lambs and their mothers have been basking in its rays. The quad bike with the maternity wagon attached has been busy delivering the new arrivals and their mothers back into the fields from the lambing sheds. The hedgerows are full of primroses and if you look carefully, blue and white violets too. The hunting horses have had their shoes taken off and are now out full time enjoying their well earned rest. Roy has even started to put weight on and will fast become comparible to an elephant if we don't watch it! Widget and Big Bill have been busy patrolling the banks by the house as the rabbits have started to spring clean their holes, throwing out last years beds to make room for the new ones. So winter is out and we seem to have bypassed spring and are straight into summer but it does put a smile on your face when you have days like these.

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!
