Cold nights

 
The sheep are being fed daily as the nights are cold and there is not much grass growth now.

 
I am going tot he Arts Centre Market tomorrow so I fed the animals early today.

 
Very tasty hay.

 
I have been spinning and dyeing yarn for my Etsy shop this week. I have listed new yarns today and will list more early next week.
 
Enjoy your weekend.

A Week Of Frosts



This morning was the start of a week of morning frosts. I fed the sheep last night so their wool had frosty tips the sheep seemed happy enough.
 



The grass was really crunchy underfoot.
 
 

 
I had difficulty opening the door on the duck shed as it had frozen.
The duck pond was a skating rink.
And I gave the dogs a warm breakfast.
 
And it will all happen again tomorrow.

Ducks


 
Ducks at Malmsbury
 
Muscovy at the Malmsbury Lake
 
 
My Mothers Day gift.  I'm so thankful to have wonderful children and I don't believe in gifts for Mothers Day.  However as well as a lovely day out I received 3 Muscovy ducks.  They are locally bred ducks and as far as I can tell listening to duck talk they are very happy here.
 

 
We have a Pekin duck called Ducky Do.  Ducky do had a friend who sadly dropped dead.
All the ducks are happy living together.



The Muscovy ducks like to swim and splash in their pool - but one at a time.

Malmsbury

 
On the Saturday of the Mothers Day weekend I enjoyed a delicious breakfast and a relaxing walk around the lake at Malmsbury thanks to family.



The weather was perfect.
