What a really thrilling weekend!!! Not solely did Storm Freya attempt very onerous, unsuccessfully fortunately, to blow us all to Kansas Metropolis, however Ulula loved a beautiful birthday sandwich weekend too! The youngest of the Farm’s sheepdogs turned four on Saturday, we celebrated on Sunday for Ulula’s birthday, after which on Monday it’s eldest brother who has a birthday… It was once a quiet birthday month for us, however not anymore!!

If I’m being fully sincere, we have been fairly glad of the storm winds on Sunday afternoon, as a stroll in opposition to them helped us recuperate from the big quantities of birthday cake eaten 😉 What made us rather less jolly was seeing all of the early blossom, which final week felt it was secure to bloom, being blown about like confetti – a reminder if we would have liked one to reside within the second, and so we loved the scent from the plum blossom whereas the youngsters danced underneath the falling petals. Stunning.

Our soil is a heavy clay, which signifies that if the cows have been exterior on the fields through the winter the grass would rapidly be churned up and turned to mud. The cows are usually set free of the barn across the finish of March which is all the time a beautiful sight. For the youthful calves, it will likely be their first expertise of grass underneath their hooves and blue sky straight above them.

The Cow – Roy Wilkinson
Closely, wearily, strikes the cow
Within the peaceable nation scene,
Sleepily nodding in direction of the bottom
As she grazes the pastures inexperienced.

Her massive, cumbersome mass of a physique
Flops on the earth and she or he appears,
Chewing and chewing and chewing
Misplaced in her personal world of desires.
