More of the same

More of the same has been on the cards today; land management.

I have been poo picking again, the mountain of muck is growing; this despite a visit yesterday from a very nice BT engineer working on a neighbours fault taking some home. It amazes me where it all comes from, I'm sure the faster I clean it up the faster the girls in particular push it out.

It has been really windy here today, it was blowing the hay all over the place this morning as I was filling the mangers. The rain hasn't arrived yet but it is forecast, oh dear looks like Paul will get wet if he wants to play on his new quad at the weekend!

Sadly we have lost one of our chickens today. Poor Peggy drowned, I think the wind must have blown her into one of the water toughs. The chickens regularly stand on the side to have a drink without any incidents so I can't think of any other reason than the wind.

Poor Peggy, how unfortunate - but looking at your date, have you gone back in time Debbie?

Debbie, Barnacre Alpacas said...

Not sure what happened to the date there! I've just corrected it.
