What lovely weather we have been having this week. On Sunday we were able to watch the Red Arrows perform as they lined up for their display over Duxford aerodrome. While sat outside in the sun shine with a cup of tea in hand.
This week Claire has been taking advantage of the exceptionally good weather by catching up on those jobs that have to be done. Such as hurdle painting not the most exciting of jobs but will mean that ever thing will be ready for the teeny tiny patter of little lamb feet in January.
Claire is very good at geting grey oxide paint every where. But dad suggested that claire use pig oil. Yes pig oil which is a lquid parrafin base to remove the paint. To claire’s surprise it worked. Some times not all of dads suggestions are silly.
The new ram is here and has already matted 6 of claire’s ewes. Some of the ewes seem to be more keen on him than others. But he has settled in well. Mum has give him the name of Big Daddy. As she thought he needed a name.
Two more of our very pregant cows have calved. With out any help from us which is always the best way. as it means less stress on the cow and calf. Just anothter 10 more to go this year.
On Sunday we will be going to see our new pup. We are all very excited including Gwen ( our border coillie) as she has been much more playful than normal. Just goes to show that dogs can pick up on much more than we give them credit for.
