Monday 26th December
No white Christmas, but there was a tiny smattering of white this morning.
There was a bit more at Astwood, when I went feed the steers but I don’t think it’ll last.
The steers are getting a scoop of sugar beet every day, to get them steady enough to apply a pour-on worm / fluke treatment.

Moved the steers to their winter paddock today, with access to the wood. It was half dark by the time we got round to it, but they were really good.
Although the weather had been good over winter so far, I’m happy with them having additional shelter, just in case. We’ll get the ring feeder in soon.
The sheep now have access to all the other paddocks, so they’ll be happy too.
Met my chum Carol for lunch – great to catch up at Balgove Larder. Brought home a few wee foodie treats for Dan.

Took Meg to the vet and she’s been kept in overnight on fluids. Poor old girl. She’s in the best place. Hope to get her home tomorrow.

Meg’s much better and is home. She’s on a diet of chicken and rice for the foreseeable.
