We’ve just spent a fun afternoon, along with campers, building two tyre rope swings. These are in the field next to the campsite, along the river walk. Ian is doing the final test on the swing and making a monkey of himself – more pictures in the photo gallery.
I woke to a very strange sight the other day. Here’s how the story goes…
…no not a UFO, but a feed bin. Some strange characters knocking about though.
Chloe is a first year vet student at Liverpool Uni and spent three days with us at the end of June. She was keen to learn all about goats and get as much experience as possible. Here she is giving one of the kids a clostridial vaccination. She also helped with the foot trimming, vaccinating all the other goats, milking, general health as well as all the everyday chores. On the final afternoon we arranged to visit one of the larger commercial herds near Shepton mallet where they are milking 700 goats! Thanks Chloe – you were a fantastic help.
I think her hair might be being nibbled!
The goats are out! We have made a paddock at the front of the building and 21 goats and 3 sheep are all happily settled in. They took a fair bit of coaxing out of the old shed and it took several trips shaking a bucket of feed to get them all across. They seem to be enjoying their new paddock now, dancing about in the sun.
Did you know 30th May – 5th June is National Camping and Caravanning Week? I’ve just seen an advert on the club’s facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/thefriendlyclub
“The Club is urging everyone to get their family and friends experiencing and enjoying the great outdoors. The Big Pitch camp out will take place on Saturday June 4, during National Camping and Caravanning Week 2011”
Prizes to be won!
The 29th April was not only a special day for Kate and Will but also for our little friend Bluebell.
Here you can see her being held by Princess Flower! Flower often visits us with her family and helps to bottle-feed these babies. She has kindly named them for us, although I think Bluebell is the favourite.

Goats kidding everyday – lost count of how many kids! Very cute – lots of frolicking in the hay and even some goat acrobatics. Just wish they would stay still long enough for me to get a picture.
