Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all our readers, here's to a good 2009 for all of us!

Today a bit of normality has returned to Barnacre with all of our Christmas and New Year visitors going back home. The animals have enjoyed my mum being here as even they realise that she is a complete push over, and really take advantage of her good nature, almost all the animals insisting that they have to be hand fed.

Today was the last injection for Alice following her rather sudden abortion earlier in the week. She is fine and dandy and flirting on a regular basis, however she will have to wait to be remated.

It was a new round bale on the menu this morning which went down well, this weather we get through so much it is a never ending job filling all the mangers and hay nets. Oonagh always insists on helping herself from the bale after I have covered it for the day and always manages to find a gap large enough to get her head into to help herself. This afternoon when I went into the field she had friends; Willow, Chiquita and Molly!

Ursula has been limping for the last couple of days, we could not see or feel anything untoward. Thankfully today she is looking much better and is walking almost normally, I think she must have pulled her leg somehow.

Happy New Year Paul and Debbie,

Sorry to hear your recent bad news, hopefully she will be pregnant again in a few months.

Happy New Year to everyone.
