August news from the Farm....

Hello from Wyndford, 
 It would seem we are having a bad hare day… it may not be the buck eating the sweetpeas after all – we seem to have a larger than usual number of hare sightings! They particularly like the spot just outside the fence where the dogs can see them…drives Molly nuts! (more than usual that is..)
Shhhh - a rare sighting of the lesser spotted calm Molly Dog!
The Emu’s have unfortunately abandoned their 16 beautifully coloured eggs – but so far none of us have offered to blow them out! We all remember Jaco’s attempt... Both the tortoises have made an appearance, although Charlotte seems to have decided that she isn’t quite ready and needed a bit more sleep – maybe she feels the possibility of snow in the air again.
 This coming week sees our first ever Fun Trail Run at the farm with a 5 and 10km trail over our beautiful sandstone mountains. Still time to join us if you have a need for speed… with sponsorship in aid of Cluny Animal Trust run by Jan and our great local Vet, Katherine, who has just paid us a visit. After telling you last time how beautiful and cosy Bandit was looking in his woolly jacket, today he has a sore eye - never a dull moment with horses!
I know it is sometimes hard to read all the way to the end… but our calendar of events is attached for those who like to plan ahead.
Hoping you have a Spring in your step

Is it coming near you....

Whoop whoop, we are quite done with the brown palette and looking forward to seeing things pop into new growth. Having said that.... as I write there is a possibility of snow in the air.  We had wonderful gentle rain last night which settled the dust beautifully.  The fruit trees are starting to bud and the Japonica are starting to bloom.... unfortunately the two full beds of sweetpea seedlings outside Belsteen Manor now reside in the buck's tummy!! (again…)
We temporarily lost Socks (doesn’t one always go missing?) but she is back and reunited with Humphrey.  Looking at the horses yesterday, always a calming occupation – even with Molly, Sprockett and Rocky underfoot – you should just see Bandit’s coat, it is like a thick woolly jersey!
We had a Fun Christmas in July, although it was hard to find Father Christmas…. Look out for our next year calendar coming soon so you can plan to join us.  
Now, I know all the pictures that come from the walks are usually from other’s cameras …. but in preparation for our Spring Day Fun Trail Run at Wyndford on Saturday 1st September,I offered to walk the 5km trail with Rynhard… only to discover he was doing the 10km. Pictures included just to prove I did it!! …Well only 6.4km to be precise and needless to say he completed the course in a lot less time once Molly and I were picked up at Agate bank!
We are ready
and it’s going to be fun so don’t delay!! Call now to book…
PS Humphrey did Agate Bank and back yesterday …think he’s hoping for a podium spot?!
Happy greetings from us all….
