I am feeling better today – thank you for all your kind thoughts and messages – hugely appreciated.
My day started with the sheep and the hens being fed. Four bowls for three sheep in their little field – once our vegetable garden.
Once they have their four bowls of food to argue over, Lambie comes running out behind me as I leave and shut them in. He has his own food separately.
That’s because he is Mummy’s precious woolly lamb and he likes to eat in peace and quiet.
On my way back to the feedshed, I meet Wussums who is out and about trying to find unsuspecting wildlife he can bring down.
Lambie, of course, comes racing over to see if there is anything more going begging for a poor thin little sheep.
I swear if he could beg, he probably would!
Here is today’s sunrise.
The horses are fed by Daisy. We have them all up in a small paddock where she distributes the silage into defunct fish-boxes. This is an attempt to stop the precious silage being wasted but some (Kappi) are mucky eaters.
First of we thought we would put a couple of fishboxes outwith the paddock so Newt and Albie could eat without being bullied. *** cough – Haakon – cough ***. He can be horrid.
But, so far, we haven’t needed to. The horses are actually on hard-standing. It is a bit muddy but not nearly as bad as it would get without it.
There are many more piles of silage in boxes than horses/ponies so everyone gets enough.
Then all the horses are chucked out of the paddock and they can wander about in their two fields.
This is the view from my front door.
Not bad, eh?
