Tree pruning

The girls have been doing a bit of tree pruning today. I went to check on everyone and give Heidi her bottle at lunchtime and found Ursula climbing the fence to get at a tree! We have a few girls that love pruning, mainly Ursula, Geena and Imala.

I thought I would offer a little assistance as, A, I didn't want Ursula to slip and hurt herself, and B, break the fence. I bent the tree down slightly and then got mobbed, or rather the tree did. Princess Mallika took a real fancy to it and was pushing her way to the front.

I have noticed an increase in the hay consumption over the last few days which is a sure sign that autumn is approaching. I can't believe it is October next week and we already have two girls in the second trimester of their pregnancies.

Not a lot else to report, I've been busy knitting again and have almost finished my first ever lacy pattern; I usually get mum doing the garments with holes as I never plucked up the courage to try them. So far I'm really pleased with my scarf, I will get a photo of it and put it in the shop in the next few days so you can let me know what you think.

It's almost winter. We have frost nights.

The good thing about autumn is that we're getting closer to spring :P
