The ewes are in the building on lovely dry straw and filling their tummies on munchy haylage. The polo ponies have had to be brought in. A first for us as every stable is now occupied but I don't think they've had dry legs or hooves since it stared raining.

Widget and Bill are befriending the rayburn or log burner most of the time and the lanes have been rivers on occasions.

The weather forecasters are talking of better weather in the long term at long last and hopefully the windy and wet band of weather coming across us now will be the last of the worst storms.

I think everyone is desperate for some sunshine and are not being put off from booking their spring and summer holidays as we've been really busy with enquiries.

Lambing next - Mid March onwards!
