I'm back!

Things have been very hectic the last few days, hence the lack of blog. I thought I'd better find five minutes tonight to get on line before I got any more complaints!

It was the Westmorland show last Thursday so we had a very early start (4am) to get our five animals on board and ready for inspection over on the opposite side of the country for 8.30am. Thankfully everything went according to plan, even loading in the dark, and we were there in plenty of time.

It was a very successful day to, with five animals entered and five rosettes we certainly couldn't complain. It was a long day mind you and I think the animals were as glad to get home as we were. We did have a slight detour on the way home as we passed some friends broken down on the side of the M6, so we pulled off and were able to load their two boys into our trailer and drop them off at home whilst they waited for the RAC to tow them home.

Today was spit off day for Ursula and great news, she revoked all of Golden Guinea's advances. Fingers crossed that means that she took first time, we will try another spit off next weekend and keep everything crossed until then. Duchess has her ovulation spit tomorrow.
