We borrowed this great tank from Tim Ainsworth, and have used it to photograph shots that show both above and below the water. The tank was also used by the BBC when filming "Countryfile" at Lucies Farm.

Christmas at the Dog Resort


ZDec-22-06-0686.jpg

The Queen has her annual speech. Our tradition is to do formal Christmas portraits of our doggie guests beneath the tree. Or as near to formal as we can get.

Matthew Barney's Guardian of the Veil


il-tempo-del-postino.jpg

We were asked to provide the Highland bull for Matthew Barney's "Guardian of the Veil," part of "Il Tempo del Postino" at the Manchester Opera House. This was part of the first Manchester International Festival. We were glad to provide Ross of Bien Esk, and we recorded the whole experience in photographs.

3M Thortex Walltech


3M-0434.jpg

We contacted 3M for their advice on how to paint our cement block walls in the stable-kennel conversion. They suggested we use a particular contractor, and he was fabulous. But the 3M paint, in our experience, was awful. In the end the job had to be re-done with paint from another manufacturer. We found 3M to be very second-rate in their view of customer service. Guess I need to buy my Post-it notes from someone else. I won't be purchasing 3M products in the future.

Wooden Gates


Wooden-Gate_24.jpg

The Gates of Albion. These were installed by Albion Landscapes and Fencing in September 2009 and we started to have problems with them immediately. We offered a payment, less a retention, but this was refused. Instead Nigel Roberts took the farm to Court. We made another generous offer in mediation, again refused. The Small Claims hearing took place on 11 June 2010. The judge said the gates were "slipshod," and Roberts agreed! We won a judgment to pay to remove the gates and have someone do a better installation. Roberts was also ordered to pay our Court fees and the costs of our expert (from Timber for Technology Ltd.). A lesson in Customer Service - and the folly of rushing into Court. A huge thanks to our solicitor, Richard Slade of Richard Slade & Company.

Wild Boar and their Pig Arcs76 viewsThe pig arcs sit on compacted hard core at the top of the field. There's about three feet of compacted hard core, and it drains well --- giving the wild boar dry bedding and a way to be on dry land (i.e. not clay).

Marjorie and the Tamworth Lady2702 viewsMarjorie has shown great wisdom and has worn white trousers out to visit the piggy wiggy. Naturally, the pig's reaction was to coat her nose with mud and then want to show Marjorie how much she is loved. Kissy, kissy . . .
