The hound puppies, Fetlock and Fearful are growing fast. They were even allowed to meet Coral and help turn her out into the field after she'd been ridden. This proved very exciting all round especially when Fetlock thought it perfectly ok to jump up and give Coral a big lick! Thankfully she accepted in good grace after looking sideways at me for approval.
Widget has been entertained by a family staying in Trap Cottage. Even the Dad had to play ball!
We have a new (second hand) combine which Wyndham is itching to try but the weather has changed and with all the showers we keep getting it means the corn doesn't dry enough to get started. We shall keep watching the farming forecast with hope.
I picked wild mushrooms yesterday and cooked them for our supper - wonderful. As one season comes to an end so another brings us gifts and surprises.
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.
