Sunday was ‘poo picking’ day in our rented paddock. Ellie, our 21 yr old coloured Warmblood Cross has been lame for a while, so on the vets recommendation she and Toby, our 16 yr old coloured Irish Draft Cross have been out for a couple of weeks. Usually we bring them in every evening, so with them being out all the time is has been necessary to ‘poo pick’ on a regular basis.
Irene decided it would be a good idea to take the two adult goats (Misletoe & Marigold, 3 this year) for a walk up to the paddock to have a munch on the sprouting hedgerow!! Despite our best efforts they refused to leave our sides and refused to go anywhere near the hedges!!
Managed to get some more veggies in the polytunnel, carrots, beetroots and spring onions and some more cabbages outside too. The raspberries are doing well in the fruit cage and the black, red and white currents are already in flower. Spring is finally sprunging!!
