Starting from number eleven there are five new photographs on the Photo Page.

Here is your awwwwwwwwwww for the day Marie/NJ

These are great pics!!!!!

A baby moose was in distress in a creek. A man got him out of the creek , tried to find the mother & send him on his way, but eventually the moose stumbled back into the creek & was rescued again. The baby moose followed the man home.

The man has only a small cabin so he took the moose to another neighbor, who took these photos. They took the moose the next day to a woman who looks after wild animals & she put it in a pen with a rescued fawn. Marie/NJ.

The two Female Reindeer from Pewnnywell Farm have settled in very well. We haven’t seen any arguments between them. At feed times they tend to hang back a little but once our Reindeer are eating they soon join in. The Reindeer Field is calm and looking a little fuller than before they arrived.

It is very mild for this time of the year but the leaves on the trees are changing into their Autumn colours. We need for it to stay dry so that we are able to leave the Horses out in their Field. With the rain that we have had over the Summer the grass didn’t stop growing so there there is still a lot of to be grazed off. If I had realised that the weather was going to be as good as it was last week I would have taken a cut of grass off of the Valley Field. There would have been little chance of it making hay as we were getting heavy dews in the mornings and the grass would not have dried completely but we could have made haylage.

Haylage is made by wrapping the bales just before the grass is completely dry. As it is wrapped it is a lot more expensive to make than hay. It take a few weeks to mature in the plastic wrap. Make it right, when the bales are opened it sends out a sweet smelling aroma that Horses cant get enough of. Make it wrong and you could well finish up with bales of mouldy feed that could well cause Horses problems if eaten, so we always wary about making it.
