Snowdrops and Primroses

Snowdrops and Primroses

Spring is trying her best to come out to play and there are lambs in the fields so we won't have to wait too long before it warms up.

We start lambing proper in the middle of March, that said we have had a few unofficial arrivlas after Wyndham bought in some yearlings to put to our tup but it looks like another tup must have got there first! So watch this space.

We are coming to the end of the hunting season so Roy, who has worked so hard, has had his shoes taken off and is already enjoying some much deserved time off. Coral, the baby horse, has done so brilliantly well this season and you can see a photo of her standing proudly between Ben and Turk at the Diddlebury Hall meet. She isn't even 5 until the 2nd April!

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!
