Some of our hens can’t resist a free ride, especially when snow has fallen. Once again, Matty the guard-donkey obliges when Diane or Connie, Clare or Lucy hop on board for a spin around the pasture. No sweat, no cost, so who can ask for anything more?

Recently fallen snow has nearly all melted now, and old-timers (monks) are predicting we’ve already passed the coldest temperatures of the season. Let’s hope they’re right!

With continued prayers as we embark on a new civil year, 2022.
