Saturday was our farm equipment sale and Tim had spent ages getting everything ready and placing them out in the field.
There were also lots that were called "by permission". These are lots that other people want to sell and they contact the Auctioneers we were using to let them know what they wanted to sell. So by the end of Friday and early Saturday morning, our back field had a selection of cattle trailers, a small baler, gates, wood, post knocker and other sundry items.
The sale was very successful from our point of view and most of the items were picked up on Saturday with the rest being collected today. We've still got Abbi, Anya and Missy, plus lambs, here but they will be going to their new home on Tuesday. My cockerels and 2 Maran hens also went to their new homes over the weekend so it is very quiet here, so much so that this morning we slept in as there was no Cornflakes the cockerel to wake us up!
Tomorrow I start packing for Woolfest, followed by the house. I've already packed up 2 of the bedrooms and I can see us running out of boxes pretty soon so another trip to the removal firm will be needed next week.
