A sudden thaw is upon us after last week's bad weather. Just as well as everyone was getting a bit fed up of being stuck inside. Instead we now have mud everywhere. Tuxedo has been spending the nights in the polytunnel all winter but with the snow and wind he didn't go out for several days and Wallace and Caesar joined him indoors during the worst of it. Warlord didn't even want to go out into the yard some days. Dunn and Dougal moved into the house field for some shelter from the east wind and to get water when the troughs froze up. Hopefully we can get back to normal now in time for lambing next month.
Given the freedom of the yard, Crystal, Skysail and Warlord have chosen to squeeze into the middle of the shed while their stalls are mucked out. They are standing in the snow that blew in under the doors and in up under the eaves overnight.
