Lockdown, pandemic projects and carrying on

Life at Rockley continues pretty much as normal, although it's odd not to be leaving the farm except to get feed and supplies.

We had planned to get the fencing (where we'd planted the new trees) done this spring and despite the pandemic, the good weather and the fact that Andy is at home meant we were able to finish that this weekend.


Spring is definitely springing here, and despite everything its a wonderful time of year. We know we are incredibly fortunate to be able to be outside on the farm and we thank our lucky stars every day.

For the horses and the dogs of course everything is carrying on as before and they like us are glad to be out of a long wet winter.

Following on from Guinness' update last week I am really pleased that Wilberry, who arrived at the same time, has also made progress - his footage is here: https://vimeo.com/404591527. He is not yet as confident as Guinness but its a good start.

Finally, for anyone who missed it, we also had lockdown haircuts at the weekend, slightly nerve-wracking but the results were better than expected... https://vimeo.com/404523323

I'll be posting more updates on the rehab horses and new lockdown clips this week - in the meantime stay safe all.
