Our day started on an exciting note! The cattle arrived back at the farm for the winter having spent the summer out on the moor. Usually the weather is awful but today dawned bright and sunny and I found myself standing, as I did last year, at an upstairs window to watch them as they plodded past, weary and steaming from their long trek. It’s a good feeling gathering in the animals, knowing that they will be protected from the worst of the winter weather and helps us to look forward to snug winter days with warming food and cosy fires.
