Old friends and new have been to Tugford and many have brought their horses with them too. The livery yard has been really busy and the horses have enjoyed their new surroundings and beautiful countryside to ride through.
We had a great hen party with a rather special butler last weekend and the Ludlow Spring Festival brought lots of visitors also, some of which got a glance of the butler too!
The hound puppies, Wenlock and Weaver are growing fast and love their walks with Widget our terrier.
Those of you who know will be aware of the cycling I have been doing. Myself and a few other friends are training to do the coast to coast cyle ride from Workington on the west coast to Sunderland on the east coast. 127 miles in total over three days. Today Fiona and I are setting off on a 50 mile training ride as the challenge is now only a couple of weeks away. We have our route planned and lunch organised of course!
Let's hope it doesn't rain.

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.
