Annas Puppies

Wyn has been finding plenty of indoor jobs to do on the farm whilst we wait for the better weather. This coming weekend is the beginning of the silly season I think and this year it will be even more hectic as we have to make haylage and hay yet!

We walked the crops on Sunday checking for any problems and the wheat is starting to 'turn'. In other words rippen into the wonderful gold colour prior to harvesting.

I've booked the farrier to come and shoe Roy and Ben on Monday and then they will start their three weeks of road walking. It helps to harden off their legs and prevent lameness during the winter months work ahead of them.

My ginger girl 'Coral' (4 year old filly) is doing well at her summer school training and next week I will pop into see how she is doing. I feel like a parent going to parents evening!

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!
