The other day I opened Poppy’s electric fence gate so she could come out and visit with Sheila but she refuses to cross where the electric fence WAS. I bring her food over and she paces back and forth in front of the memory of the white electric line never crossing, never taking one step over. It has been two days now – it will be interesting to see how long it will take her to let herself out of her imaginary enclosure.
The cows across the way were released into the hay field to do the clean up. There is not much feed but they must have felt like they were out on The Range.
I have not divided it in half yet so it is HUGE.
You can see the line between the old well fertilized/manured field and the hay field which has never been grazed. We were blessed with a shower of rain last night so all the fields will put in a little growth today.
The last of my guests come in today. The Retreat is not open for booking next week or for the week I am away in Greece. But I have quite a few bookings after I get back. The airbnb is my best little money earner so far.
And it looked lovely last night – waiting for the weekend guests.
We must get imaginative with marketing. I would love to have it full of farm visitors all summer!
Isn’t it great when a plan works!
Meet Leia (pronounced Lay-ah as in Star Wars) and Luna. Still all in one piece. Twice. I hope they do not calve on one of the hot, hot days that are coming. But I would be grateful if they calve this coming week.
Have a lovely day.
