Floss and I went to Brae to get some barley straw (this year’s cut) and wood shavings for bedding.
As it is Floss’ last week, she goes back up to Oxford on Wednesday, I treated her to fish and chips at Frankie’s – No.1 Fish & Chip Shop in the UK in the National Fish & Chip Awards (2015) and it is on our doorstep. Get in! So we did. It would be rude not to.
We went the scenic route and I stopped to take photos of Autumn in Shetland and to prove we have a few proper trees here too.
It was a lovely lunch. We loaded the van with straw/bedding and then we went home.
Now Taktur and Kappi are back in Clothie. They are very unimpressed but this will stop Taktur wrecking the fences and gazing at the girls.
Albie and his stepmother are in the field behind the house (Lambie’s ex field). I want it eaten down so Fivla can live there.
The Maternity Unit has moved to a field with lots of grass. Only mothers-to-be and milking mothers need apply.
Haakon, Iacs and Klængur are in the hill park. 20 acres to themselves. It is half hill and half grass. That should keep them going for a while.
Darling little BeAnne is a trooper. She tries all the time to do everything she used to. She has mastered the stairs and can walk up them sideways while I walk behind her ready to catch.
However, BeAnne can’t walk downstairs, as the stairs are too steep but we will put non-slip tape down and see if that helps.
However, she managed to jump up onto the sofa (yes, I don’t care) by doing a sort of Fosbury Flop. Whatever works.
And this is now the view from my kitchen window.
