Autumn has turned. October has been lovely, with blue skies and sunny days. Now, the sky is grey with heavy rain clouds and the wind is ripping the leaves from the trees. In the fields the colour of the grass is fading.
Minnie and Cassie spend their days out in the fields, but at night I bring them into the field with the shelter. I let them dry off in the stable while they’re having their evening feed and then I put their rain sheets on for the night. Judging by the amount of droppings I find in the morning just outside the shelter, they still appreciate being able to stand in out of the rain.
