Been Busy

Meet Ewen McTeagle. He's a Hampshire/Suffolk cross and was one of a set of three from a friend's farm. He's had rough few days, but I think (hope) he's on the road, so it's time to name him and send out a picture.

Tim came up with Ewen McTeagle. He was a character from a Monty Python skit. The way I understand it, he was "Scotland's finest bard", who's poems seem to all be short notes sent to friends and family and all following the same theme:

"If ya' could see your way to lending me six pence, I could at least buy a newspaper. That's not much to ask anyone."

Or, possibly the most useful, "Can I have 50 pounds to mend the shed."

I also have exciting news from the pond - babies out there as well! Stella and I have been trying get some pictures, but we are consistently outsmarted by the proud, but cautious parents. Hopefully more later. Parenting is hard, stressful work no matter if you are in a house, barn or pond.

I wanted to see him today! I promised the others you'd be here... missed opportunity. He does look adorable indeed. I'll stop by as soon as I can.
