    Being it is St Georges Day today I thought that you may like to see a carving from one of my old wagons. The wagon is a 130 years old and has many nice carvings http://denburyfarm.co.uk/wildlife/wildlife-gallery/

    Why is it that we are the only country that does not celebrate their national day?

      Mr Farmer, It is not the one that I have just tracked from Africa as that is now in Northampton. It is the first of a few and no doubt one may pass by any your farm on its way north into Wales. We don’t seem to get many here any more just the ones passing through,

    Oh No 10.30 pm your time looks like a live snake in the nest. If it is a water snake or eel would it eat the eggs!! When it pops it’s head up Lady just looks at it as if to say what is that. Showing No interest in eating it. Betty Canada

    I am sorry that I havnt posted recently on the forum this is due to a few health problems but I have tried to keep up with all that is posted. Elsie Happy Anniversary to you and Harold. I am sorry that you are not having good weather in Bradford. We have had super sunshine all day for the past few days (not usual for Scotland ) but great for Mabel and her eggs. Thank you for your updates on the badgers Mr Farmer I am loving seeing them at the feeding station

    Kingfisher on webcam one. at 19. 50 First I have seen this year It had just caught a fish that was a little to big or a quick feed that made it struggle to swallow.

  • MrFarmer says:

    There were two Badger Cubs out playing last night with six or seven other adults from the sett. Although with the number of Badgers I had seen I had guessed that there were cubs, there was not signs as in other years with the bedding being changed every few days or so. It was good to know that they were breeding. Later a Roe deer turned up for a feed so it was a busy night on the webcams.

    So sorry to hear everyone’s problems. What a bunch we all are!! Elsie I am on 5mg morphine every 8 hours and it working very well. I am even able to eat a little more now. They think 1 or more lymph glands are swollen in the abdominal cavity causing the pain and problem eating. At least hopefully this is the correct diagnosis this time and we can get on with finding a treatment.
    So sorry to hear the story of the horse, some people don’t deserve to keep animals. My cat’s are so spoiled and we love them so much. They take it in turns sitting with me to keep me company. Betty Canada

  • Mick says:

    Elsie, Thanks very much, may well do that if no improvement in May. I have not been able to drive now for a couple of years now as I had so much laser treatment that my peripheral sight was destroyed to save my central vision.

  • Elsie Nicol says:

    I can’t look at the photo of that poor horse Mr Farmer, I would end up in tears. The one thing I can’t stand in life is cruelty to animals. Thank goodness she is now with a new owner.

  • Mick says:

    Mr Farmer, That was really a sad case of miss treatment of an animal. I should think that must have bought a tear to you all. They should be locked up in a room on their own for a year at least . Still a very good home now with lots of love.
    Do you have any idea when the Black Swans will hatch as I would like to catch a glimpse of the hatching.

  • MrFarmer says:

    Some of you may remember Solo a Colt Foal that was born on the webcams in 2008. His mother was Emmie. I must admit other than knowing her as a very kind horse and that I delivered Solo I remember little else. Maybe some of you may remember some details.

    After Solo was weaned off of his mother he was sold as a foal to whom we believed was a very knowledgeable kind women, who assured us that Solo would have a good home and be very well looked after.

    Two days ago we received a letter from Zoe who had purchased Solo from the women who we had sold him to. She described buying Solo from what she called a junk yard full of rubbish, where Solo a few pigs and a sheep were kept.

    Solo was in a very sad state. Just skin and bones as you can see in the photographs I have put on the Wildlife Gallery. He was unbroken when he left us and unbroken when Zoe got him. More than likely he has been on his own without the company of other horses for the year with the women.

    As you can see by the other photographs Solo is now with a good person who has another horse. Zoe will give him the care he needs and give him a chance to become a companion.

    We no longer breed or sell horses. That decision was made some years back as it was always sad to see them leave.

  • Mick says:

    Well it looks like my eyes are not getting any better and this time my best eye was really bloodshot and swollen until today, but they said that they will do one more in May then review them afterwards.
    I was just reading back on some of the messages from Betty and Jenny and noticed that you both seem to having the same, things not getting any better for both of you. I hope you do all get good news soon and be able to return to a normal life well specially for us anyway.
    Nice to see that you are back Karen and gradually beginning to sort yourself out as well hopefully.
    I see that the Cuckoos are on their way back from Africa and I think that the one in front is on his way up to see you Elsie.

      Mick, Harold is having really bad trouble with his other eye now, a few years ago he 15 injections for wet macula, now the other eye is going. He goes next week and they going to try a new injection called EYELEA. He can’t read now and can’t drive, he was told he could drive locally but he doesn’t even do that now. Apparently this new injection has been known to reverse the situation, so here’s hoping. We had a lady come out yesterday from the Bradford Resource Centre, and she say when he has been to the hospital she is going to arrange for a volunteer driver to take him to the Sensory Resource Centre where they can give him different gadgets to help him. It amazes me when it is said that the elderly don’t get any help, we certainly do here in Bradford, we are well cared for and whatever we need, if possible they get it for us. I can’t fault our Health care here. Anyway take care Mick and mention that new injection when you go back to the hospital.
