This weekend was a busy one! On Saturday we went up to my Aunties house to meet with my sister’s wedding caterer. It was also my eldest sister’s birthday so we spent the evening with my family having a nice dinner and visit everyone, tomorrow is my other sister’s birthday so we will be celebrating with her then. As well as that we managed to get up to the yard to see Beattie, find out how she is getting on and to trim the goat’s hooves.
Beattie is settling in well although still not mixing with the boys… I trimmed her hooves as well as the boys this weekend and I was pleasantly surprised at how well she stood for it! When trimming their feet I tend to put them on a harness and then walk them up on top of the mounting block to make it a bit easier for me to see what I am doing, but as it was the first time doing her feet I didn’t want to make it too tricky so did hers on the ground. She was very good about it, even better behaved than the boys are most of the time so that was a relief! The goats were all wormed in the previous week so she is now up to date with their injections too which is a relief.
Sunday was a very different day… We had our young farmers entertainment competition which involved my club’s performance of a gogglebox skit. There were boys dressed as girls, renditions of Let it Go (complete with Elsa costume) and a lip syncing performance of Wannabe by the Spice Girls from me and the other junior members. It was a fun day out as we stayed to watch the other clubs performances too. There were lots of Britains Got Talent style performances and Bake Off skit. It’s fair to say that Worcestershire has got talent! In the end, we didn’t win but we had great fun and got lots of good feedback…
Looking forward to the next few weeks I am hoping to do some lambing and spend some more time up at the yard as I am on half-term the week after next. I am working on a few exciting projects that I can hopefully reveal soon so make sure you are following me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for updates!
