Newly born lambs have arrived in Tugford. Wyns cousin has started his first batch of lambing and the new borns are out in the fields enjoying the unusual warm weather with their mothers.
We start lambing late March, so some time yet for us.
All the animals are fine. The hunt horses are in fine fettle and going well. The polo ponies are enjoying their winter break wrapped up in their winter rugs and tucking into plenty of haylage. Widget and Big Bill, the terriers, are of course fine, busy running the farm as usual. Widget is back on house arrest because the builders are back working down the road and as before we are aware they are not employed to entertain Widget!
Wyns gun dog Anna is at her fittest now having to put in at least a couple of days a week picking up. She loves it but at the end of the month the shooting season comes to an end and her holidays start.
Check out the out of season prices for the cottages and churchwarden cottage, our new Ludlow town house (www.churchwardencottage.com). Grab a bargain and come and see us all.

Lambing time in beautiful Spring sunshine! It's been a blast up til now with great conditions to turn our new arrivals out on to fresh grass. The Curlews that nested last year and successfully raised 4 chicks are back. We're watching them to see if they choose the same spot, in the same field and will do what we did last year, put electric fencing around the area to stop Badgers and Foxes eating the eggs. We'll keep our fingers crossed and update you on their progress. We have our first equine visitors this week who have had to dodge the council laying super smart tarmac everywhere. We're going to be very posh in the Corvedale you know! Brexit is driving everyone nuts so we suggest you pack your bags and hide out here in our little corner of rural South Shropshire. Light the fire in Meal House and turn off those phones to totally relax - at least for a day or two. Give us a ring or email and come see Spring erupting in little Tugford.
