They’ll not be happy . . .

Opposite our house is a small parking area. Beyond that there is a medium sized (whatever that means) field. there is a sort of path that runs along the edge of the field, but I have been informed that it is not an official footpath. however it seems to a haven for the local dog owners. Dog ownership in the village seems to have increased over the past few months, which is probably due to the pandemic.

Last year the farmer grew nothing in the field, which happens every few years. About three weeks ago we noticed that the field was being sprayed with something. This usually happens before the farmer starts planting. The very same day saw at least 3 dog walkers in the field. Now I don’t know what the spray was, but I certainly would not walk my beloved pet anywhere that has been sprayed with anything.

Today, I noticed some people in the field with a commercial digger. They appeared to be picking up some of the rocks that lay scattered around the field. In the past half hour, I watched as the small ‘entrance’ to the field was blocked with soil an some of the rocks. I’m now of the opinion, that the farmer is going to graze sheep on the field, as the ‘entrance’ was blocked a few years ago when sheep were grazed. What now for the dog walkers. They will have to use the proper public paths to walk their animals.

  1. Richard, the farming friend who rents my land did some muck spreading a few weeks ago. A week later he brought up 14 pregnant gimmers (first timers). I expected more sheep, but on the other hand, the grass won’t begin to grow properly until April, so maybe that’s why.

    Last week he put the sheep in the pen and a farmhand sprayed the fields, I assumed it was some sort of nutrient because it’s too early for weed killer, whatever it was the sheep were kept away and had to stay in the pen for three days.

    Hope those dogs were okay!
