Log Fires and Cosy weekends
We've been busy on the farm harvesting and now all the corn is in the grain store. Next years wheat is being planted and Wyn is hoping to get into the beans today with the combine.
The ewes have been moved onto the lush green grass to get them in peak condition for tupping and we've bought four new tups to add to the other boys.
The polo ponies are back from their busy summer and they are loving the freedom of our fields. They've started to put weight on already.
Big Bill is in love but he's not sure who with. Two bitches in the village are in season and we're struggling to keep him in. Widget on the other hand is in fine shape and as you can see has decided to expand her role as top terrier at Tugford.

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.
