New Year

After a cold December spent selling Christmas trees, Bill was pleased to shut the barn door on Christmas Eve with only a handful of trees left and retreat to the warmth of the house to celebrate Christmas.

Although the snow has disappeared, the ducks can't get onto the pond because it's still iced over and so have pushed their way under the fence into the field where the pigs lived and have been treating the wallow as a mini pond. The ground here is wet and muddy with water standing in the low ways so it's hard work walking along the footpaths and the horses kept in the livery yard are limited to turning out on a rota basis otherwise the fields would be a sea of mud.
