Haylage at speed!

The headlands of the grass fields have been harvested first to allow easy access to cut the middle sections. Wyn was so rushed last night he asked me to drive the tractor and trailer around the field whilst he loaded it with round bales of haylage and then once I had transported them to the storage area, he unloaded them ready for the winter time.

You might think this quite normal but the last time I was entrusted with driving a tractor Wyn and I had a race down the field. Two huge tractors coming at speed but one driver forgot they had twin wheels on and drove on out through the gateway taking the gate post with them! No guesses who!

Roy and Ben were shod yesterday and so today we began the three weeks walking regime. When we got back they both had a lovely warm shower - care of the pressure washer.

I watched the famers at The Royal Welsh Show cleaning their cattle with one and thought well if their cattle can put up with it then so can my boys. Roy wasn't so sure, being the bigger and bossier of the two he jumped about a bit but Ben thought it was the best massage he'd had in ages and loved it.

Anna's puppies are up on their feet and their eyes are open. More photos soon I promise.

Summer time and the living is easy! Well if you're on holiday here it is at the moment. What amazing weather. We need a 'Cold Tub' not a 'Hot Tub' We have Swifts, Swallows and House Martins swooping over our heads early morning and evening. It's magical to watch as they scream into the tight places above the stables and cottages. We are busy making Hay (while the sun shines) and so everywhere smells of summer. We have some late availability so if you fancy a last minute break we always up for a barter. Give us a call!
