We gave Jonesi, our welsh black bull, a quick manicure today. Not the usual nail scissors and buffing brush job however. Rather a quick wiz round each hoof with an angle grinder. He finds it a bit upsetting to be in the cattle crush naturally, but the actual trim doesn’t hurt at all.
We’re rather desperate for rain here on the farm at the moment. It’s been astonishing to hear reports of flooding to the north and south of us while we haven’t seen as much as a drizzle. We had strong winds for a number of days but no rain whatsoever.
