• APRIL 2013

    At last, a few warm days. What a hard winter. March and April were taken up with lambing. A few tragedies but now lots of healthy lambs all running about full of the joys of spring, and constantly finding new ways to shorten their lives. By chance I noticed one the other evening as were putting them all away in the sheds for the night. It had put its head through the stockwire, forgetting its horns were growing. Result, it couldn't get its head back again. All I heard was a faint cry then saw a lamb by the fence. The mother had given up on it and if we hadn't noticed it then it would have either died during the night or had its head bitten off by a predator.

    We now have four Saddleback/Hampshire cross pigs. Two black and two with white saddles. One escaped yesterday, the battery on the fencing had gone flat, and he enjoyed himself chasing a male pheasant. He ran back inside the enclosure as soon as the food appeared. Now a re-charged battery will keep them all firmly in place.

    The television pilot. We're all having a well deserved break for a few weeks to re-charge our batteries. New ways of telling the story keep leaping to mind, all greatly improved with giving the project a bit of space.
