Carl has a plan to put the front end of the old Fiesta on it and apparently it will be okay if I keep it in 5th gear (I have no idea what this is supposed to mean as the Mule does not have gears - just forward and back).
However, in the mean time, Carl has provided me with a new field vehicle - second hand actually but you can't have everything - I shall thank him in an appropriate manner when he gets home tonight.
Bert is still limpy but she seems quite happy. I make sure she has a little pile of hay near her if she sits down and she never seems to end up left on her own. For some reason she seems quite popular with everyone.
