Welcome to our new diary.
As we have had numerous emails asking about life on the farm we have started the diary to keep you updated on events, happenings and life on the farm, with the animals, seasons and wildlife.
We will try to update it regularly, but because of our workload it may not be as often as we would like, so please be patient.

One of the horses in foal, Woody the grey mare has been unwell for the past couple of weeks, we had to call in the Veterinary who gave her antibiotics and took blood samples. The samples showed that she had a virus, she was put on a course of the antibiotics by injection. We have to do it ourselves, as all farmers do with their livestock. It only took a couple of days for her to realise when the injection is coming, even without seeing the syringe, she keeps turning away trying to avoid it, kicking her hind legs out to try to stop it, but it has got to be done to get her well.

Spring is well on the way, no sooner than the snowdrops disappeared last week the primroses appeared with the viola and daffodils, it all seems early this year, we are not complainig as it has been the wettest past three months for many years.

The sun has been out all day with clear skies. We went to turn the telescope on this evening as the sky was the clearest it has been this year, but we were unable to because of a problem with it`s computer, it may have to go back to the supplier to be repaired. We can see that a large number of people are trying to access the telescope. When it has been going it has been very good. It has not been easy getting it setup, we believe that we are first in the world live broadcast as we are. We hope to have it up and running very soon.
