The ewes are in the building on lovely dry straw and filling their tummies on munchy haylage. The polo ponies have had to be brought in. A first for us as every stable is now occupied but I don't think they've had dry legs or hooves since it stared raining.
Widget and Bill are befriending the rayburn or log burner most of the time and the lanes have been rivers on occasions.
The weather forecasters are talking of better weather in the long term at long last and hopefully the windy and wet band of weather coming across us now will be the last of the worst storms.
I think everyone is desperate for some sunshine and are not being put off from booking their spring and summer holidays as we've been really busy with enquiries.
Lambing next - Mid March onwards!
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.
