You thought it couldn't get worse......................
Well, like most of you, I was feeling pretty fed up with the weather. This morning is no different in that respect, drizzle, mist, cold and wet. A quick look out of the front door, to see….. the farmer next door cows’ in our hay field. The whole herd broke the fence (yes a new -ish strong one) and have totally trampled, smashed and eaten our entire years crop. This means no hay to sell (and it’s £4.00 a bale), no hay for the sheep and ponies. NO HAY full stop. The field would have yielded about 350 bales, dependent on when we could actually bale it, so you can see, it’s quite a valuable crop. To say I am fed up is an understatement, I’m actually crying as I type. Just a rotton run of bad luck at the moment.
