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.

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!
