I’m feeling really grim today but I’ve managed a couple of toddles outside with my camera. So here are some shots from around the farm.
First up, here’s Gigi guarding the grey chicken’s egg. The daft chicken is currently laying just under the kitchen window, which is a popular sunbathing spot with all the animals. But I’m grateful she’s laying at all, given that it’s midwinter. Plus it makes egg collecting easy when it’s so handy.
You don’t get time off to be poorly with this crowd to feed! They aren’t sympathetic at all and were annoyed at being kept waiting a little longer than usual this morning!
Runty the Ram in particular was impatient.
Good job I did get out. The llamas had knocked a ladder across the entrance to one of their shelters. There was great consternation as I feed the llamas a few handfuls of grain when they’re in the shed. As usual Katrina was spitty and horrid to the others which, as usual, cut the feeding session short.
Grainne had also got herself tangled up in some blue string so Chris and I cut her free. I’d heard some rustling behind the tractor and went to investigate and found her. The other llamas hadn’t told us. As you can see, Juliette (left) is more interested in daydreaming while Lulin is keeping a watchful eye on Roly the cat who’s on the hay bales. It was while I was taking this pic that I realised something was going on behind Rusty Deux (the tractor).
Fortunately Chris is fighting fit and has nearly finished plastering the front of the gite.
The new look is great.
The wind had got up this afternoon and Oberon and Portia watched me potter past from the shelter of their trailer.
The piglets, however, were as happy as anything in the mud, despite the chill!
So, a quiet day for me but the animals and rest of the family are as busy as ever.
