New Stable Doors.

 


It was a very rough night the other night.  So we decided to house the livestock.

Number one son recently made these metal doors for the horse and donkeys.  The doors are made for them to stick their heads through and we give them treats of barley, 🥕 and 🍎  and vegetable peelings. 

They seem to like their animal hotel.  The only deposits they leave us go on the fym heap for the vegetable garden.😊

  3. Sounds as if animal heaven is living on a farm in Ireland owned by Mr and Mrs Northsider Dave.

  4. Some of my smallholding pals end up in the freezer Debby like yours but we try to give them a good life. We don't eat the horses, pony or horse. Thanks!

  5. "Number One Son" sounds like a resourceful and practical young man. Good job with the stable doors. It is a shame that you and your missus could not come up with a proper name for him when he was a baby. Calling him "Number One Son" was almost cruel in my opinion. You could have called him Gordon or maybe Peregrine like JayCee's husband.

  6. I'm a Charlie Chan fan YP. No1 son is named after his late Grand Father. His Grandfather was called James or Seamus. Thanks!

    1. Until just now I never knew that the names James and Seamus were connected - so thanks.

    2. Your welcome YP. A Solicitor once told us that the someone called Stephen can also be called/ known as William or John. This can be very confusing when tracing family history.

    1. Just beam them over to Seanhenge's Apple Dorado. Yesterday alone I picked 14 stacks full. One juicier than the other.

    2. Sounds like you have had a super harvest Sean.

    3. Despite a summer with little rain, we can be satisfied with the beans, cucumbers, courgettes and onions, plums, damsons, apples, walnuts and hazelnuts. Tomato and pepper harvests, on the other hand, were suboptimal compared to other years.
      But we are grateful to our little garden. Everything that grows thrives without pesticides, and it tastes that way too.

    4. It sounds like you have created your own part of Eden Sean. I don't use any chemicals in the garden.

  10. Thanks Linda. They make up for the rural isolation and keep us busy seeing to them especially in the winter.
