Spring SunshineEaster is looming and we have lots of new and returning guests booked in. Widget is having a wonderful time at the moment being entertained by three little girls who don't seem to tire of throwing a tennis ball any more than Widget tires from fetching it. I rode baby horse, Coral, this morning in beautiful sunshine along the Jack Mytton Way and the Wenlock Edge. Just wonderful. I came across a walker who was just sat in the sunshine, leaning back on a big oak tree taking in his surroundings. There just heaven, days like these! Wyndham is ploughing the now dryer ground ready to plant beans and most of the ewes have now lambed. Only the hogs (young ewes) to go now. I spotted Cow Slips and one young Bluebell in the hedge row this morning. Spring is well and truly here.

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.
