Gilfach Farm Livery and Holiday Cottage
 
 

Diary - September 2013

Autumn

After a lovely "proper" summer for the UK, everything on the farm is preparing for Autumn now. The plants are bearing ripe fruits and berries; the Swifts (I think!) are making plans for their flight down to Africa, and the resident Gilfach horses are getting wooly!

The Horses

McGee (shown by Leigh) and Zela (by Sophie) represented the yard at the annual Sennybridge Show on the 7th, doing us proud in being impeccably behaved (if not fat or flashy or whatever else was needed on the day) to get a ribbon! (They didn't seem to care).

We have sadly said goodbye to Larry as a livery at Gilfach. Larry has moved on to Cardiff-pastures-new with his owner. We all wished him luck with his new chapter of horsey life.

Other Animals

Our chicken dynasty has reached a peak of seven hens now - installed within their own luxury Chicken Country Park

Fluffy and Oscar helping Sheila to keep the sofa warm whilst she attempts another chemotherapy treatment .... not pleasant. When not asleep, Sheila has been entertaining Oscar ad Fluffy by knitting things - like this chicken...

The Yard

Is being run with reassuring efficiency by Hugh, Krystina and Vaclav. Well done them!

A final big thank you to all who donated to Sheila's fundraising plea for the local Usk House Hospice. A princely sum of £2807.70 was raised to help local Brecon cancer sufferers and their families. Very, much appreciated :-)

We look forward to welcoming you to Gilfach soon.
