Stop hoofing around

The plan at the end of last week was to get our sheep sheared, but we’re still waiting on our delivery of new shears.

In the meantime it was farrier day so all the horses, aside from moody Maggie, got their hooves trimmed.

The quails have also quickly outgrown the brooder we use for our chickens, so work has started on a new brooder for those.

We plan to build a small pen for them to live outside as well once they’ve grown their feathers out, but until then they still need the heat lamp on a night when the temperature drops.

It would be rude not to finish such a lovely day with a barbecue and a hack around the local bridleways.
