1st February already and I can think of loads of excuses why I haven't been blogging - from new computer, and all the hassel that it brings, to projects on the farm, to just feeling lazy actually...
Why is it that I forget so easily what I have to do to upload images on my website? I must have spent about an hour and a half trying to do just that this morning and then suddenly I did something right and it worked ... I must write it down somewhere! We've set the date for our Open Day - 7th August, so put it in your diarys.
I've been halter training the crias as we've weaned them, most have got the hang of it. Also selected those to go to the Futurity next month, of course they're the ones that have been the most reluctant to stand still and lead quietly... always the way. I was going to do a bit with them this morning, but as its cold, grey and damp outside I decided that I would catch up in the office instead with a nice cup of coffee, biscuits missing as I'm trying to reduce the flab I collected at Christmas.
I'm also waiting for our builders to turn up to finish the shelter extension ... looks really good now. Another project that's nearly finished is the clearing of the drive... all started with a bit of pruning and I decided to be more drastic and got Dave with his digger in! Peter and I planted 3 sack fulls of daff bulbs, a fantastic bargain from SCATS, (I love that shop). The idea is to plant it all with grass and keep it mowed ... we'll see, got to be better than it was... anyway, now it provides a more noval walk for the weanlings in and out of the trees.
