Short story GIVEAWAY : Sheep!

A heartwarming story, free from Friday 23rd until Monday 26th. Some of this happened to me when we had a small holding!

Left alone on the farm to cope with a sick baby, what will Jenny do when there is an emergency? Plus an excerpt from The Baize Door, where Joanna sees for the first time how horses interact with us.

September cows

The cows and the sheep were all down two weeks early this year due to the cold weather and the snow on the tops. After a few days things warmed up and as Swingle and I went for a walk in the nearby fields, they all seemed to be enjoying the sun and being stuffed on the rich low grass!  A couple of days later there was a surprise in one of the fields!
