Tom and Henry home

Shelley is very excited. Tom and Henry have arrived at our home.

As you can see in the pictures, they appear to be happy.

If you want to see more pictures of them, lots of pictures, see their own blog.

These are to remind us of what is hidden behind all the decoration.

Long water pipe

While there was a digger hanging about because of the building works we took the opportunity to run a water pipe across the field to where we wanted drinkers.

We thought it was a good idea but August is not the right time to dig through Essex clay. I think concrete would have been easier to get through.

We filled the trench with water to try to soften the soil so we could get deeper. It's a bit shallower than we would have liked but far enough under the surface to not risk any damage and probably won't freeze.

Everybody wanted a go on the digger :-)

By running the water to the corner of the fields we could deal with all three fields in one run.

Ready to add the drinkers in the future.
