Monday 10th April
Back from sunny Gran Canaria today to find that the weather here has been pretty good too – with no rain while we were away.
John got all the paddocks harrowed and there were no mishaps – all animals stayed where they were supposed to and stayed healthy, which is good.

Jeez, windy today. Good drying day so got caught up with washing and housework and some paperwork. It’s the end of the financial year and the time of year when I mentally promise to do better next year – new spreadsheet; clean slate and all that. My record keeping isn’t bad but could be better.

Caught up with paperwork and cleaned out the caravan henhouse.

Pressure washed the trailer after the sheep movement on Sunday.
Received, from my MSP, a copy of a letter from Fergus Ewing assuring us of his support for small farmers and saying that his officials will be looking at the Small Farm Grant Scheme to see where improvements can be made.

Yippee! A few rain showers today; crystal clear and a bit cool tonight, so maybe we will get the forecast frost.
Bryn is exhausted – Mickey is wearing him out, but he also played with Zaza this morning then Otir and Ceri this afternoon, when Jane came to do the ponies’ feet. Tough life.
The pigs have settled in well, they have dismantled a pile of turves that were left to break down last year, and like to sleep there during the day.

So toady is the vernal equinox – day and night of equal length. Hopefully, we’ll see the grass start to come away now.
Jane was here to trim Bug’s feet; the grass may already be coming away, so he’s on restricted access now, poor boy.
Ace’s increased feed seems to be working and he’s a bit less ribby.
Tuesday 21st March
I had tooth extracted this morning. Dentist told me to have a restful day, so I did.
