After the Rain

There should be a rainbow... but if you look closely to the right of the first one is a second one ( almost hidden by the trees) here.

This is one of our back fields and part of the hay field as well. The hay is ready to be cut but the weather continues to be showery and well just plain English, while I hear from friends in England that the weather there is our normal hot and sultry June...
We need a week of dry warm weather to get the hay in so keep you fingers cross it will happen soon.

In the meantime, we are all adjusting to having Cherrington Merlin stay with us. He is a really good ram ( which is good since we have never had one here before) and has already picked up on when the treats are handed out. He is managing well and I am monitoring his condition carefully.

At long last!!!! The Cookie Monster!

After a really tough delivery and the sad loss of his twin sister.....

Welcome to the world, Mr.Biddlebump born Friday June 19 at 7:00pm

Biddlebump is the son of Cherrington Harry and Hopeful Gwendolyn.

He is precocious and already wandering off leaving poor Gwen. frantically looking for him.
He jumps into her hay, steals grass straight from her mouth and is into everything.
Poor MOM!
