Autumn Sunshine

The hound puppies, Fetlock and Fearful are growing fast. They were even allowed to meet Coral and help turn her out into the field after she'd been ridden. This proved very exciting all round especially when Fetlock thought it perfectly ok to jump up and give Coral a big lick! Thankfully she accepted in good grace after looking sideways at me for approval.

Widget has been entertained by a family staying in Trap Cottage. Even the Dad had to play ball!

We have a new (second hand) combine which Wyndham is itching to try but the weather has changed and with all the showers we keep getting it means the corn doesn't dry enough to get started. We shall keep watching the farming forecast with hope.

I picked wild mushrooms yesterday and cooked them for our supper - wonderful. As one season comes to an end so another brings us gifts and surprises.

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.
