Busy Busy Busy

I'm trying to remember when we last had a dry day. The sheep are constantly wet and the polo ponies, who live out, are pleased they are on the top ground and not the water logged lower fields.

It is trying to brighten up and it's definately warmer than it was. I even have roses in the garden and on the stone walls still trying to bloom.

On the horse front Roy, Ben and Coral are in good form. All enjoying their hunting this season. Briar and Megan too are well and love their hacks out and about.

The terriers Widget and Big Bill spend most of their days by the rayburn or log burner. It's a tough life being a terrier you know.

Anna our black labrador is as fit as a fiddle. She goes picking up with Wyndham when he's shooting. The season is coming to a close and everyday seems to get booked up.

As I sit here typing there is a squirrel running up and down the top of our garden wall! Surely this isn't right, shouldn't they all be hibernating!

Spring is obviously on it's way and it will be great to welcome back those longer sunny days.

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!
