Puppy Fun

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.

Wyndham  has played his first game of cricket this season after his hip replacement last November. He could hardly move afterwards but it did him so much good really and he's booked to wicket keep again next Saturday so he couldn't have played too badly.

Coral, my ginger horse (aka Baked Bean) is back in decent work and starting to loose her holiday tummy. We spent a lovely evening on Saturday riding up towards the Brown Clee Hill and back through the Jack Myton Way bridleway. We met some very excited cows with a bull in a field we had to cross through but although the cows had lots to say for themselves luckly the bull was very uninpressed by us and didn't move at all. Quietly and steady is the way to pass through cattle, especially at this time of year when they've probably only just been turned out from their winter sheds onto grass.

So that's it for now and look out for the next blog to here what's happening here in the depths of the South Shropshire countryside.

Summer time and the living is easy! Well if you're on holiday here it is at the moment. What amazing weather. We need a 'Cold Tub' not a 'Hot Tub' We have Swifts, Swallows and House Martins swooping over our heads early morning and evening. It's magical to watch as they scream into the tight places above the stables and cottages. We are busy making Hay (while the sun shines) and so everywhere smells of summer. We have some late availability so if you fancy a last minute break we always up for a barter. Give us a call!
