Today however it is fixed. One part had to come from Italy but now all is as it should be. Everyone is on stand by and I have stocked up on food for lots of sandwiches - no time to stop to eat, it's eating on the go time.
The puppies are just over 8 weeks old and have straight A's in tripping up. I have to run from the kennel to the garden with all seven black babies following me. Hours can pass whilst you play with them!
Widget and Big Bill have accepted that they are now part of Tugford Life and since they are already bigger than them have no choice really.
Roy and Ben, my big hunter horses are now fitter and Philip and I took them Autumn Trailing yesterday morning. This meant getting up at 4.50am to be at the Ludlow Hunt Kennels for 6 am. It was a beautiful morning and the mist lay low in the valleys until the sun came up and burned it away. Early mornings are just wonderful if you can make the effort.
It's the weekend of the Ludlow Food Festival so we are fully booked and it looks like it might be a record breaker for Ludlow as the sun shines at last.
