Busy Busy Busy
I'm trying to remember when we last had a dry day. The sheep are constantly wet and the polo ponies, who live out, are pleased they are on the top ground and not the water logged lower fields.
It is trying to brighten up and it's definately warmer than it was. I even have roses in the garden and on the stone walls still trying to bloom.
On the horse front Roy, Ben and Coral are in good form. All enjoying their hunting this season. Briar and Megan too are well and love their hacks out and about.
The terriers Widget and Big Bill spend most of their days by the rayburn or log burner. It's a tough life being a terrier you know.
Anna our black labrador is as fit as a fiddle. She goes picking up with Wyndham when he's shooting. The season is coming to a close and everyday seems to get booked up.
As I sit here typing there is a squirrel running up and down the top of our garden wall! Surely this isn't right, shouldn't they all be hibernating!
Spring is obviously on it's way and it will be great to welcome back those longer sunny days.
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.
