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!

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.
