We have been halter training in the rain and even if they look all wet and miserable they are all getting used to it and walking fairly well. Golden Prospect as he is so small was getting covered in hay as he seems to like to sit under the hay bags and the other three, Murphy, Merlin and Stephano eat over the top of him. Prospect is going into our very small show team this year so I would like him to keep clean. With this in mind we decided to buy a small hayrack hoping this may help, so off to Mole Valley (as it was raining again) and a 4ft hayrack which fitted nicely into the back of the car was acquired. It's amazing that the cost of the 4ft is nearly as much as the 8ft racks but they are much harder to move around and it is so nice to be able to put the rack in the back of the car if we have animals in fields over in Widecombe, saves a journey with the trailer.
We are having a proper day off today, well after feeding up, we are going to some friends for lunch and probably tea, and possibly evening drinks. They are neighbours and they are very good to us in the summer months as they see us working in the fields from their windows. So they feel sorry for us and feed us quite often to save me going home to start cooking, ............ which is so nice. Audrey is also teaching me to weave so I think we may be setting up the loom this afternoon.......... did I say this was a day off!
I have started knitting up some of our wool from the mill and I am really pleased with the results, it knits up so soft and I already have had enquires for some hats. I am also hatching up a plan, it is very much in the planning stage at the moment. !
