Monday 27th May

Between the fox last week, eating the meat chickens, and crows egg stealing this week, I think Mother Nature is trying to put us out of business. So baffles are in place at the henhouses to discourage winged thieves.

Off to Inverness to take part in some workshops for the EU SALSA project, run in Scotland by the James Hutton Institute. Looking forward to meeting small farmers from Norway and France, and to visiting a couple of crofts, as well as meeting some form from ScotGov, Crofting Commission and Scottish Crofting Federation.

Monday 3rd June

Not a bad day, weatherwise. This combination of sun and showers is great – just need a few nice dry days for the hay.

We had one very heavy shower - and Ace wanted to come in. Wuss.

Our new farrier came to trim Smokey, who was as good as gold so the farrier will be back in eight weeks. It’s not easy getting a farrier and even harder to get a good and reliable one.
