Country Diary for week ending 15th July

A couple of days after our first frost, we are having warmer than average nights and above average rainfall.  I am still a slave to the sunrise, loving the colours, and trying to capture them all.

The Oats are looking lush and are tempting the horses, which may happen as apparently it is good to graze the oats to “tiller” them and increase the yield.

27 yo horse Bowie was distressed at the start of the week, pregnant goat Midge is starting to show, and young Roo was home alone, then reunited with the others.

I found our first earthstar fungi and our first snail orchids of the year, but the best first was seeing some baby goats being born.
