Tony Chivers

The Villager

Tony Chivers is one of those people in whose company you can sit for a couple of hours and think that just a few minutes have passed. To say that his life has been (up till now at least) eventful may well be the under estimated comment of the year! It is with delight, therefore that, this month and next, I share with you a glimpse into the life of this resident of Medstead. ...

Farm News

The Villager

The ewes have been scanned to see if they are in lamb and how many lambs they have. When the flock size was much larger this made a lot of sense but in recent years the cost outweighed the benefits because the operator travelled from a long way away. However we now have someone who works locally and has purchased the equipment so it makes sense again. The results are as follows – 4 barren (including Cyclops the one eyed ewe), 14 with singles and 30 with 2 or more lambs. The ewes are sprayed with different colour marks so that we know which category each falls into. Knowing the number of lambs in each ewe is a great help at lambing time because if a lamb needs to be orphaned onto a ewe, because it is one of three or mum has little milk, then a single marked ewe that starts lambing can usually be persuaded that she has had 2 lambs not 1. ...

Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

I have decided to tackle some overgrown shrub borders which have been there for over twenty years with the occasional prune. For Christmas I was given a battery powered garden saw by Bosch. It is amazing, so powerful, with a very thin blade which is ideal for getting into the centre of a shrub. Once the lithium battery is charged it keeps its charge, unlike the older style of battery. ...
