Enjoying the sunshine


It is hectic on the farm at the moment. There are all of the animals to feed, muck out and check they're healthy as well as serving our customers in the shop or talking to visitors about the farm. But when I get a moment, one of my favourite things to do is to go and watch the younger animals.

Cecile, our Highland cow, is a very protective mother. Her calf, Dora, is a heifer which means she's a girl. She doesn't have any horns at the moment but as she gets older she will grow a fine pair like her mum. Every day she is becoming braver and venturing further away from her mum. Yesterday evening, after the visitors had left, I took a few minutes to watch as she was investigating the far end of the field and obviously really enjoying the evening sunshine. I went home with a happy smile on my face - I have the best job in the world!
