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 doesnâ€™t hurt at all.
Weâ€™re rather desperate for rain here on the farm at the moment. Itâ€™s been astonishing to hear reports of flooding to the north and south of us while we havenâ€™t seen as much as a drizzle. We had strong winds for a number of days but no rain whatsoever.
