Manipulative Little Rotters

Posted By On Feb 2013 | 0 Comments

The crocs are still winning, which means my barn should be empty of at least the boys at night. Is it? No!

Every morning after yet again mucking out their pen, I say tonight’s the night boys, your staying out. Even one less pen to muck out would be a bonus, it is starting to feel like they’ve all been in for ever.

So I tell the boys it’s nice and dry, you have a field shelter with hay racks full of ...

Friday is the 1st of March as I’m sure you are all aware and one can not help but remember last March and all the glorious weather it brought. In fact for the last few years March has been a good month for sunshine.

Crocs With Socks

Posted By On Feb 2013 | 1 Comments

Having had no rain for a few weeks and the ground being frozen solid I decided today would be a crocs with socks day as I am fed up to the back teeth of constantly wearing wellies.

I guessed that as long as the socks were thick enough my feet wouldn’t come to much harm in my crocs. I’ve had Neil telling me I’m mad and to put my wellies back on before I got frostbite in my toes. But I ...

Bit of a Domestic

Posted By On Feb 2013 | 1 Comments

The weather is cold but still dry so I’m definitely not complaining. The cold however is not conducive to standing around doing nothing and so has spurned me to get over my lazy day and knuckle back down to work.

One job I had to tackle pretty quickly was our next magazine advertisement, the deadline being tomorrow. Why oh why do I seem to leave everything to the last minute.

Armed with my camera I rushed around the place taking lots and ...

What a busy weekend, I’m so shattered I can barely keep my eyes open and it’s only 3.30 pm.

What a great day, the sun was shinning, the bride Liz looked absolutely stunning and ...

The weather has turned and we have been having glorious sunshine for the last couple of days. According to the forecast there’s no rain or snow due for at least the next ten days which is absolutely fantastic news. I hope I haven’t tempted fate by writing that:0))

The wet muddy fields and the sudden warm weather however can cause problems for the alpacas in the form of coccidiosis. These nasty little parasites loves warm wet muddy weather and can cause ...

Today’s The Day

Posted By On Feb 2013 | 1 Comments

Today was the day the vet was booked for a visit with three of our young male alpacas, Taffy, Woody and Hamilton.

These boys as I have already explained before, are of stud quality but here at Honeyfield we want to be known for only releasing stud males that are very special and all though it breaks my heart to castrate three such beautiful boys, with pedigree’s to die for, I’m adamant that only the very best should go on to ...

Rationing

Posted By On Feb 2013 | 0 Comments

The house is so quiet, my youngest child Lauren has gone up north to visit with her boyfriend this half term. How one so small, she’s only 5ft 1″, can make so much noise I don’t know, but it has to be her because she’s the only one missing :0))

Talking of missing, I’m not missing her roaring up and down the track on her motorbike and I have a whole week in which I don’t have to worry about her ...
