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!

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.
