Bank Holiday Weekend and the weather is set fair.
Country Treks will be here tonight and tomorrow night on one of their epic trail riding holidays enjoying the hospitality of the Tally Ho too this evening.
Wyndham is waiting for our corn to finally ripen not helped by the sound of other combines working in the area but it won't be long and he, along with Stuart and anyone else around to help, will be flat out harvesting.
Wenlock and Weaver the hound puppies can no longer be called puppies. They are two thirds grown and just beginning to check out the drop from the livery yard wall. As soon as they clear it they will have to go back to the hunt kennels as they will only be running amock around Tugford otherwise.
The Jacuzzi Hot Tub is going down a treat with everyone booking their slot to use it. It's a real plus for everyone staying here and we're so pleased we decided to install one.
Widget and Big Bill are really well and as usual have lots to say for themselves. They became great friends with a couple of golden retreavers we had staying and will no doubt want to befriend the three dogs arriving into Meal House this weekend.
Roy and Ben the two big horses have had shoes on this week so their work starts today. Three weeks of walking to harden off their legs and prevent injury during the winter season. I'm not sure I've got two girths long enough to go round their fat bellies!
Blog - the latest from Tugford Farm Accommodation in Shropshire...
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.
