It is bitterly cold here and I have had a frustrating knitting afternoon. The new circular needles I bought with interchangeable points and different lengths of string are horrible! The needles keep unscrewing and then because the knitting is on it, joined in the round, I can't screw them back up again. I am sure the needles shouldn't unscrew themselves and fall off as you knit!
We have made an ebay purchase though which I think will be exciting!
Greeves' new feeding plan did not go well but I think I know what part of his problem is - he doesn't like the new hay. Actually it is old hay which got rained on and we had in reserve.

I think that may work better and it also separates out the firs to birth. There she is, in the background eating. I was lining up a lovely shot of Lina looking cute, who is there by the fence.
A better penning solution! - After a long "family illness" and a subsequent reduction of our herd, I am back to report a more recent enhancement to Easter-Wood. One of the problems we ...
