Gilfach Farm Livery and Holiday Cottage

Diary - New Year 2013

Happy New Year!

Back to normality for all now! At Gilfach, preparations begin for annual "sprucing up" of the cottage and cabin after a busy season in 2012.

The Horses

With the days getting ever so slightly longer, the horses are becoming ever so slightly happier. The cessation of seemingly incessant rain has helped too!

The yard (Alfie, Jewel, Rosie, Zela, Cherry, Blondie, George, Larry & our neighbour, Duchess) enjoyed a rigorous New Years Day hack over Fforest Fach to bring in 2013 - "bracing"!

The lovely Pandora (a previous member of the Gilfach team) visited Gilfach with her owner for a jumping lesson today - it was lovely to see them both so happy together! Floy (another previous Gilfach team member) also had a brief stay with us over New Year whilst her owner was on holiday. Timber remembered Floy well!

Other Animals

Our chickens continue to amuse and delight me, and Jennifer is diligently providing us with a very fine egg every day. Oscar is taking his poultry keeping duties very seriously - helping me with morning and evening coop opening/shutting duties, and chasing off anything that looks vaguely fox like.

Meet "Lucky' (or 'Fluffy' as I call him, or "Flucky" as Hugh calls him!). The new Gilfach farm cat, who so far seems quite content in residing in our living room and being fed on demand. He is huge, and very, very cuddly. Lets hope he likes catching mice too.

We hope you have had a Happy New Year, and will have a healthy and fortunate 2013. We look forward to welcoming you to Gilfach in 2013.
