You've just given me my dose of 'cute for todayIt's starting to ramp up here now but when I was on the breakfast run a few hours ago we already had branches on all the roads and a couple of trees down, but the neds were fine and I think the boys were happy having some of their native weather to do their hair

I am a bit worried about my big leylandii, there's dozens of them and they were really bending and creaking in the wind today, only lost a few branches so far tho.
I hope everyone stays safe x
Sorry to hear your land has suffered. I thank my lucky stars often because I drive past some flooded fields and as we don't have much land I think we are lucky that it doesn't (touch wood frantically) flood much at all. We are soggy but that's about it. I hope you get a good "drying" wind for yours.Very bad here overnight and intermittently today. In 20 years this is the worse flooding on our land I have ever seen. What land is above water is churned up and muddy. Quite worrying really - we keep moving them about but what happens when there is nowhere left to move them too?
Already had an abscess in one donkey and one for Miller due to all the waterlogged and muddy ground. Just sorted nicely and fully sound again and then all this repeat performance to contend with. This winter is a heck of a struggle I have to say.
Blimey that must have been scary with the roof cladding. Eeek. Bad enough here sometimes when it gets going - we have a metal roof on one of the barns (which I'm saving up to get replaced) and that worries me - it peels back sometimes like a sardine can lid!It’s pretty grim here too, very gusty up to 80 mile an hour apparently. Lots of tree branches everywhere and the odd tree, the retail park near us lost the roof off the new huge building they are doing, police stopping traffic going into the car park as loads of roof cladding (big sheets of metal) flying around, thankfully no one was hurt.
As for Belle, well her and her bestie (a Highland mare) were like ‘wind? What wind?’ I’m sure by the time she’s had several hours of it she’ll be happy to come in tonight though.
Stay safe everyone x
