Another day, another change.


This was the view from our kitchen window yesterday morning.  What a difference today - sleet, slush, winds - yuk.

Nick came this morning after being off for a while with a bad back and I asked  him to check the sheep as I was a bit concerned about their weight.  He agreed that they needed a boost so we have upped the amount of ewe nuts we are giving them   Nick said that really you would not normally expect to feed young sheep much but because of the poor pasture this year, leading to less nutritious hay as well, all farmers are having to feed a lot more than usual.

He did not stay for long as the weather came in and most of the outstanding jobs require at least the ability to stand up.
