A Successful Day, Dispite The Weather
Our first visitor for this years Open Farm Sunday event arrived in the drizzle just before 9am. The tractors were polished, the trailers swept and the fields nicely mown. After a slightly delayed start we headed off to The Overbury Stud where Simon Sweeting gave us a talk about the workings of a stud farm. It was fascinating hearing about scanning mares to check for a pregnancy at 16 days. We also saw a Brown Hare running across one of the fields, a great start to the trip.
