Daisy, Flossie and my OH are doing all the chores while I dwell in my pit not being able to help even slightly.
They have dutifully gone over to Leradale, sometimes twice a day, to make sure everyone has silage and, more importantly, water. Their water supply has frozen solid in this weather and water is a must.
Every day the family have lugged haynets full of silage and containers full of water and I know it is very hard work.
There is also the hardfeed to give to Brá and two foals as well.
It is all received gratefully.
And Hetja gets to wash up.
It is a token gesture really as she is also a heffalump or a good do-er, as we say in the trade.
Or fat, as we say in real life – yes, we do!
I love Dreki in this photo!
Without my family, none of this would be possible. They are being wonderful.
