Dear All Terrain Buggy Makers, I wish to take this opportunity to add some more ideas to my previous letter. Having now used the buggy for 8 weeks, I feel that you could create an all new buggy suited for those in agriculture, game keeping, crofting and landscaping, etc. 1. Due to a mini crofter who doesn’t like being stationary, why not add a self generated energy system. We have enough wind turbines in our country, let’s look at new ways. 2. I have noticed that baby chairs often have a button for vibration. Why not add the option … Continue reading Dear All Terrain Buggy Makers,
Dear ‘All terrain’ buggy manufacturer, When you sell a product as ‘all terrain’, I am intrigued to know what image you have in your heads. I would be more than happy to have any manufacturer of all terrain buggies come spend a day with me or any woman in agriculture. However, as it may be a bit more muddy than you might expect and I might be chasing pregnant cows, here are some tweaks that would be useful. These include: Two hooks on the handle bar to hang buckets or shepherd’s crook. Space between hand bar and canopy to place … Continue reading Dear ‘All terrain’ buggy manufacturer,
6. Labour has several meanings: such as when you ask your Mother-in-law to come and stay for labour…in reality the byre is a working progress and the Crofter really needs another pair of hands. 7. The brush cutter is not an easy implement to use once you start feeling the effects of all those bacon rolls for 6 months. 8. ‘Nesting’ is for the chickens. During the latter stages, when you are not in your ‘paid work’, you are able to complete jobs that have been on your to-do list since the house was built 3 years ago. You are … Continue reading Crofting Wifie’s guide to pregnant poaching (points 6-10).
1. Eat bacon rolls, no one bats an eyelid when you put a bit of flab on. 2. Don’t tell anyone until after you have sheared the sheep and baled the hay field. People like to stop you having fun. 3. The advise of no ‘heavy’ lifting is subjective. Reasoning goes: 20kg chicken food bags on the shoulder was the norm, therefore reduce this to just transferring the sacks rather than carrying. 3. A 6.5×55 (aka the deer rifle) is not heavy – you just have to remember what weight you are shooting if successful and the length of your … Continue reading Crofting Wifie’s 5 point guide to being a pregnant poacher:
Dear Sled makers, It would be most kind if you could look at making some slight tweaks to your design. These include: Cattle energy buckets are wider than most children. However, adults also use sleds so don’t think that this change will only suit pregnant poachers taking nuts to their cows. The length of the sled would be good to be about 2 inches longer so the small bale for the calf creep wouldn’t fall out so much. Otherwise I am most thankful for the cheap and cheerful sled. Kind regards. The Crofting Wifie P.S. Dear Calf Creep feeder builder, … Continue reading Dear Sled makers,
Well Aaron, you were lovely. Your rump is delicious. Having provided us with 3 heifers last year, 4 on the way now, you were also able to do ‘holidays’ to Farr and Rogart, fortunate boy. You are now available to others to be enjoyed and shared, individual cuts/sizes/prices to follow, if interested let me know. Happy steak dreams one and all. Continue reading Obituary to the bull…
