Soggy Shropshire

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!

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!
