Smallholding News

Well we have the mammoth task of keeping in our birds now that the bird flu has hit the region. So we have moved the old polytunnel over and netted it to keep them in. The other were already in a good sized area to protect them from the fox. Now we will put wood chips on the ground for them and string along a few treats to stop them getting bored.

The ducks and geese are the challenge as each time we get them in an enclosure they escape.  But we will see.

When visiting the studio the gates are closed as the sheep keep escaping from their pen. We are looking at new stock fencing for them in the hope it works.

Our puppies are getting along fine though the car journeys still are a challenge for them. Luna is still quite shy and a bit nervous too. But she has come along heaps and bounds. They are learning how to come back when called but still cannot be off the lead outside as they like to chase anything that moves. Well I say anything not the sheep they are too big and intimidating for them.

They do sit when commanded, so we can put on the harness and take it off without all that wriggling. They stop when on a short lead so they can sit by roads too. And they are house trained Hurrah.

Still a bit nervous of other people but they are still very young. So you will be seeing them more and more in the studio now.

Looking forward to seeing you all very soon

Anita
