The weather is about to descend, big time, in the form of a long and boring gale.
I feel so sorry for my animals but they know what to do.
With this in mind, we have spent the last 24 hours getting ready for the onslaught. Basically, tie everything down that might go flying past the window.
We moved anything so it can be tied to something that won’t go anywhere.
It was also a good chance to tidy up too before nature kicks in and does it for us!
This is the Boyzenberries most favourite shed in the whole world. It is vile outside and has been here forever.
If it blew away, I would not be sad but the Boyzens would be.
I have put water, a mineral lick bucket, all their feed buckets and plenty of silage onto the deep straw floor.
I am not too worried about the sheeple – there are lots of buildings around they can shelter behind if they want.
The field where the sheep are fed has been cleared.
The hens now live in Lambie’s best bedroom so I have shut them in with water and food.
Everything is as nailed down as much as it can be.
We will do our best to get out tomorrow and feed the herd, at least twice so they have a good central heating system in place. After much discussion, Daisy and I have decided everyone is better off outside. Kappi and Taktur, who are now back in full training, have rugs. Efstur has a rug and we also rugged Newt and Albie (who was very pleased to get his dressing gown back). Depending on the prevailing wind direction, we may move them to a more sheltered field tomorrow too.
So bring it on. Candles at the ready too.
