Barwhillanty Blog… happy horses!
The clip-clopping and happy horse sighs can now be heard on Barwhillanty! Our gamekeeper David’s wife, Amy, has two magnificent mares that now grace the field by our holiday cottage, Diamonds Laggan.
Morgan and Tuesday are a beautiful and friendly duo, both excited about exploring the Barwhillanty land… they are always happy to see you and you may well see Amy and I trotting past on them, if you are on a wildlife walk. Amy is the professional one, who knows what she is doing, whilst I am the one hanging on. Little Acacia has also been up to say hello! Amy has lovingly had Morgan for 15 years and Tuesday for her whole 8 years of life, so we are thrilled to welcome them to their new home on Barwhillanty.
The cycle of lambs continues, as some have bid farewell to meet the butcher’s table and the next flock of fluffies are meeting our testosterone-filled tups! We have some new tups this year to ensure our breeds do not in-breed… we can’t wait to meet the fruits of their frisky encounters next spring, in sync with the celebration of Acacia’s first birthday.
South West Scotland is still brimming with sunshine and plenty is still in bloom. Our winter vegetables are coming in thick and fast and our green-fingered gardener, Steve, has even managed to grow an aubergine or two… got to get the Greek influence in somewhere!
As autumn creeps in, the colours are starting to change, showing Barwhillanty’s new face of seasonal magic. There is always more to experience on your holiday here with us, whatever time of year… so come and experience it for yourself!
