And now I know what I really would have liked to bring home - the elephants!

Dear Kathleen, i have ridden on an Elephant but never milked one! Rolling on the floor laughing You thinks cows are sometimes difficult, try an Elephant they can go where they wish to, if they desire.
I so hope that you and Stan are well? I should be in contact more but due to my accident i can no longer work on the farm, which I loved doing. So therefore I think i intrude!
Group hug to all.
Neil.

I guess I must have missed the news about your accident, and am saddened that you can no longer farm. Never an intrusion. I love to hear your stories about the farm.

Dear Kathleen, I still go there to rid them of the rodents and the farm shop is doing really well indeed. Just the heavy stuff I cannot do at the moment; or rather the Doctor will not let me do it!
Due to the disease that has killed a lot of sheep in Europe, has caused our sheep which are not affected, to go up in price now our lamb is sky high. It was last year £80-£100 a sheep, but now you can ask what you want as the E.U. want it.
We do not do that as it is English lamb and is reserved for the British, plus British salt-marsh lamb is renowned as the best in the world.
Maybe we could sell the E.U. some of the pigs we are not allowed to breed and have to imagine it, like in the letter I sent you, they would not know!
Or sheep on set aside land we are not allowed to farm on, how would the politicians in Brussels know?
Keep well my dear. nice to hear from everyone lately!
Group hug
Neil.
