ALEX and her daughter go to their new home on the 10th of this month. December already! In fact December 2nd. I am away on my travels in 15 sleeps. FIFTEEN!
The days are crammed with things to achieve between now and Sunday the 17th.
I took these pictures of Alex and her baby for the grandmother who is buying them for her twelve-year-old granddaughter for Christmas. The little girl is a delight and is one of the only people who Wai will come and say hullo to. (He would not even come out of his house to show off to the vet the other day – I had to entice him out with food). She is going to call Rainbow – Abigail. Such a sweet name for a wee cow.
Here is one of Molly’s little ones. Now that their big mother is out of the picture they are showing her curious disposition. Images are hard to get of them now that they have begun to mob me on sight.
This morning may be Lady Astors last milking morning. We will see. Her production was low enough that I am milking every other day to try and bring her down to the level that I can dry her up. The weather being so warm that John is back working and he cannot milk and work with his hours. But I have to be very careful that she stays healthy.
Another lovely day for us.
