Not all of these count as farming, but I don't s'pose that matters...


Monty, looking his usual soppy and Unicornoid self.

Some of Monty's offspring. We won't ask why they like my feet so much.

Did someone mention Shepherd's huts were worth a fortune? This is mine. The wolf is an extra.

Daffodils in our young wood. In fact combine-getting-stuck memorial daffs: it was easiest to chuck them into the wheel ruts with a bit of soil on top. I suspect English Nature would object to putting daffs in a wood, but they've been there untouched for 15 years, and they make me feel better every March. They invariably come into flower in the 3rd week of the month, almost regardless of what sort of winter/spring it's been.

Great photos - I don't know what to say about Monty- I guess he would be very versatile.

Caption competition ?

Thanks for the pics RGSP-think the shepherds hut might need a bit of renovation

Saved his life I think. He had a nasty skull infection, which upset his horn buds, and used to be seriously painful. Considerable use of freezer spray, hacksaws, vallium and antibiotics has turned him into a lovely natured lad, and he's got excellent conformation and musculature as well. I feel tempted to show him this year at our local show, but some of the more serious competitors might not see the joke.
Bongo met him, and I think they recognised each other as serious foodies. I'd back Monty in a straight race though.

He might beat me in a running race, but when it comes to the ladies, I think I have the upperhand, so to speak. And I'm better looking. And my horn is in the right place :wink: :lol:

To his credit, I think Monty is more interested in creeping up behind ladies, tapping them gently behind the knees, and then laughing at them on the ground. He doesn't do it with me.

Couple more photos from what is now yesterday.



Electric chickens. Not remotely commercial, but they produce lots of very nice eggs, and selling the spare eggs does pay for their feed.

Back door of the house, or come to think of it, the only outside door. Clematis Armandii doing its stuff, as it does reliably every spring. Bit late this year, but still very welcome.
