Making hay while the sun shines!

Our 6 recently acquired sheep are making very slow work of the grass in the field, so last week Roger decided he should cut it and make some hay (which will be very useful should we decide not to kill them all come the winter!). Luckily help arrived on Sunday in the form of Tom and Dorit from Germany and like most of our guests they were soon put to work. Tom and Roger spent most of yesterday raking and filling the trailer with hay. Here they are in action:

Storms were forecast today, so Dorit and I thought we would give them a hand with the other half. It only took about an hour – goodness only knows what they were doing yesterday – we suspect they we having a beer or 3 in the field! Anyway, it all worked out and we got the last load into the hayloft just as it started to rain!

Yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far. Our thermometer suggested it was 35 degrees and the pool was showing 26. Tom and Dorit decided it was hot enough to brave the pool (made of tough stuff these Germanic types!). Here they are pretending it is warm, watched on by Lennie the dog. Actually, Roger and I joined them and I have to say it was rather pleasant.

As noted above, Tom and Dorit have brought their Boxer Lennie with them. We were a bit apprehensive about how Boudie would react as she has never had another dog in her house before – let alone one sitting on her bed, playing with her toys etc. They seemed to hit off straight away and they are now firm friends…

Here they are….best buddies!!
