Quatre is away this weekend, back to Seattle and civilization, a well earned rest for our very hard working volunteer.We look forward to her return on Sunday! Before Quatre made her escape, a chastened Quest was returned to the roundpen for another exercise in Quatre discipline….a very well behaved Shire obligingly walked trotted and loped around the roundpen , only an occasional little brattish buck or a momentary stubborn refusal to co operate indicating the reason he was in the roundpen in the first place. Greg is being held by a promise he made to me NOT to take Quests compliance for granted and not to risk falling off without a parachute…at least till I am back up and in full working order. Quatre had fun and intends to repeat the lesson as many times as Quest needs to remind him who is in fact in charge!!
Ursula has done a wonderful job of painting everything that doesn’t move in the barn kitchen a lovely beaming white. A cheerful barn kitchen will be greeting our Farm Tour guests next week and Ursula will be Queen of the kitchen which I am confident will be just the perfect assignment for her.
Last night Greg and Ursula burnt the almost midnight oil crushing pears. With eyes gleaming in anticipation I have been advised that in a little while those pears will be pear wine….mmmm.
Time to go, the cuckoo has cuckood, Greg is stirring and Bran has his ear cocked, must be 7.30. Take care, keep safe, M
