Where did summer disappear to?
The nights are now drawing in and we have managed to harvest enough grass (hopefully) and ensile it for the livestock for the coming winter months.
We are busy getting things ready for the cattle coming in for the winter, which hopefully won’t happen for a few weeks yet.
The autumn sheep sales are all on at the moment. This is the time of year when the hill farmers sell there breeding lambs or Shearlings (18month old) for replacements for the lowland farmers flocks.
These together with the rest of the breeding flock will be put to the Tup or Ram the result, lambs next spring.
The autumn colours will soon be with us as the trees loose there summer colour and we slip into the autumn months.
A beautiful sight ,which is well worth a visit if you get the chance.
