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.

What a great weekend we had with a fantastic family full of fun, adults and children alike. 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.
