August 2011

A disappointing hay harvest, an operation for Daisy and a good looking porch

August has been pretty manic.  As well as working on the new Training Lines website we have had the hay to worry about.

As usual the weather has been awful but after studying the forecast for weeks we took a chance and cut the grass.  Of course it rained a lot afterwards but one morning we woke up to a hot dry day and decided to bale.

In the past we have had as many as 428 bales from our field.  This year we managed a paltry 89.  We shall have to buy some in to see us through the winter months.

With Archie maturing rapidly we decided we couldn’t put it off any longer and so Daisy was spayed.  She was a terrible patient and we couldn’t leave her alone for a minute.  Then just as we thought the worst was over, the stitches were out and she was getting back to her normal self, we discovered her wound had opened and she needed to be stapled back together.  Another week of monitoring her every move followed.

However, we have found an odd few hours here and there to work on the two porches and the larger of the two is now almost complete, just a few finishing touches left to be done and we’ll have ourselves a fantastic new room.
