Still going strong with Harvesting inbetween the rain! The turkeys have arrived, what with that and x factor starting Christmas must be just around the corner! Still on our guard against rogues and thieves, so much so that the police got called for an intruder late on wednesday night that turned out to be my nephew looking for something in the workshop!
Harvey started harvesting this week. Maralyn (the dear old combine) started with reluctance after nearley a year of inactivity, went 300 yards and broke in three places! She's off again now and I believe is behaving.
Ploughing began yesterday, I'm not sure how much got done but BT,the tractor, is now in the workshop with a pucture!
The Christmas Geese have arrived, and the Turkeys are due this week, we may have a fox problem though judging by the pile of feathers that appeared in the yard overnight, not sure which chicken is missing yet will find out at bedtime.
We had a theft from the horses field this week which is really sad, but at least it wasn't one of the horses. More successful competition results this week with a first for Ella in the combined training at Naydon.
Ashley Maunder. At Home Farm from birth a long, long,long time ago!!! and sometimes Alison who has been here for 25 years!
