Saying that, being stuck in the house for a few days has had its benefits and I am pleased to say that Als and I are really cracking on with the next book, Tummy Trouble at Roberts Farm. Next week I will be posting up a few of the pages as a sneaky preview so make sure you keep watching. Tummy Trouble is all about Cassidy, a little grey Welsh Mountain pony, who lives in the barn at Roberts Farm and thinks about nothing else apart from his tummy! He can’t believe his luck when he meets a sneaky weasel that shows him to a place where he can eat all his favourite sweet treats, whenever he wants! Unfortunately he soon finds out that there is a price to pay! The focus of the story is around healthy eating and exercise and there is a hidden treat within the book that shows just how fun exercise can be!
Back to the farm, it seems my sister came to her senses and decided to take her giant rabbits to the school fete instead of the piglets - a wise choice although it would have been great to be able to video the chaos! The piglets are getting bigger and bigger by the day and are now very interested in solid food (watch the video above). We ended up having to board up the front of the gate to their sty as they all managed to escape yet again and ended up on the neighbours vegetable patch...not a good thing I can tell you!
As the weather is finally warming up, all the sheep in our area are being sheared (this is when their wool is shaved off) so I am hoping to be able to video that next week. I'll also give you an update on Jeremy the calf and the orphan lambs down at East Meon.
Have a good week.
