The sun is shining, the primroses are flowering and the skylarks are in full song overhead. Wonderful.
This week the grass paddocks have been harrowed to clear out any moss and shallow-rooted weeds like chickweed and will open up the soil surface to help the fertiliser work. This should produce vigorous growth, which means the horses will have plenty of grass later in the year.
We have also been chasing pigeons off the oilseed rape. Again. But you knew that didn't you?
