House’s last day plus workshop projects finished

On the farm
Today is House’s last day. We went out last weekend and I took a few photos of the boys in all their fluffyness. It was quite late in the day but here’s a nice one of him having some hay with Riley who is still the smallest. I wonder how they’ll respond to losing House as he’s quite dominant despite having no horns. Aardbeg’s horns are looking magnificent these days. We had planned to buy some heifers this year but with the house project moving so slowly we’re putting it off until next year. Also we’re trying to save as much money as we can for the buildings that we need.

In the workshop
Nick finished a couple of workshop projects yesterday which he is very happy about.
First up is a sword which is for an order – there are several photos on Flickr

And he also has make a lovely ebony handled dagger – none of my photos came out terribly well but here’s an OK one. As you can see it has a very crisp pattern. This one is for sale.
