Rawlinshaw Farm|Zwartble and Blue Texel Sheep|DIY Livery
October 2015
There are always improvements to be made on any farm!
The last couple of years, we have had issues with water drainage around our top building and now we have found out why- A crushed drain! So whilst correcting this we have made access to our building wider so Sam can clean out using the tractor herself instead of needing contractors. It will also allow better access for the horses to come in and out during those winter months.
