There was not a lot of photogenic activity in May, so we have put it on the same page as June.
|Cutting Ferro's Field for hay.|
|Harry the Hedgehog||The gloworm in the yard|
Unfortunately, the friendly little fellow, Harry the Hedgehog did not last long.
Despite feeding well, on cat food, milk and snails, he had an injury to a back leg and he
appeared unable to curl up. We were going to free him at night in the lucerne field - to
avoid attack from the dogs and Champagne Rose. Several times we have found stomped
hedgehogs in her field, and one day the removal of hedgehog spines from her mouth took all
day! Does anyone else know of a horse who detests hedgehogs so much that they will attack
The glowworm was a nightly occurrence for about a week. We found it was inhabiting a hole in the concrete in the yard. A couple of night's of closer investigation with a torch and it changed homes. There are several living in the muck heap.
Early activity was concerned with the storing of four loads of hay. Hopefully this will last till the Autumn rains come - if it bothers to rain this Winter. It didn't last year.
|Getting ready for Hay||The first load||One lot away|
|Where to put load three||Answer - a mini haystack||A few days later, dramatic, but luckily going to miss us|
A Seasonal hazard are the bush and forest fires. This one appeared to have started near Barão de São Miguel, and was heading more or less due South.
|This was going to be a photo of the Summer Jumping field, but
it's taken so long to not produce a suitable one that you can have a picture of Mikael,
Sam and Tiffany instead!
(As it's already July)
|Sam and Perdido||Deborah and Scrumpy|
Having taken the hay off Ferro's field, the opportunity to erect a few jumps - and some advertising - was taken. It is also being used for grazing.
