Treacle and Tomatoes
Things have been rather busy of late here,
The sheep have been wormed and feet checked ready to see them through winter
Manky who turned up the other month with a damaged leg, still hasn't been claimed, she has become very friendly, a good investigation of the leg it seems it must have been broken some time ago and has fused in a bent position, she gets about fine and is not in pain, she also got wormed along with our sheep
and has now joined our little flock.
The doves have had a hard time and another 7 were taken by the Goshawk, Magpies ripped the baby doves from there nest,
This mama dove was chased under the car by the Goshawk, she is our last remaining female
and she had a young one to care for,
we cleaned her off the best we could with washing up liquid
and she was left to dry off in the barn
a week on cleaned up with her partner and youngster, as these are the only remaining doves we have kept them in the barn, we are moving the dovecot into the fruit cage and soon they will move into there.
Yes we are still picking tomatoes, not a lot but its still lovely to have some fresh tomatoes.
The old garden shredder is being put to use shredding up vegetables for the goats to help bulk out there meals as there isn't much green stuff around for them to graze.
Spot a new goat
This is Treacle
He is on loan to us until the new year, hopefully getting the girls into kid.
The Buffalo's are not with us yet, we are now all ready for them, I will try and get some photos over the next day or so.
