Bank Holiday Weekend and the weather is set fair.

Country Treks will be here tonight and tomorrow night on one of their epic trail riding holidays enjoying the hospitality of the Tally Ho too this evening.

Wyndham is waiting for our corn to finally ripen not helped by the sound of other combines working in the area but it won't be long and he, along with Stuart and anyone else around to help, will be flat out harvesting.

Wenlock and Weaver the hound puppies can no longer be called puppies. They are two thirds grown and just beginning to check out the drop from the livery yard wall. As soon as they clear it they will have to go back to the hunt kennels as they will only be running amock around Tugford otherwise.

The Jacuzzi Hot Tub is going down a treat with everyone booking their slot to use it. It's a real plus for everyone staying here and we're so pleased we decided to install one.

Widget and Big Bill are really well and as usual have lots to say for themselves. They became great friends with a couple of golden retreavers we had staying and will no doubt want to befriend the three dogs arriving into Meal House this weekend.

Roy and Ben the two big horses have had shoes on this week so their work starts today. Three weeks of walking to harden off their legs and prevent injury during the winter season. I'm not sure I've got two girths long enough to go round their fat bellies!

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!
