A photo mini-blog from Frugaldom

It's such hard work eating hay in the sunshine. This is Dobbin (on left) and Ginger. Dobbin is now 4 years old and originates from north Wales, where he was rescued as an abandoned foal. Ginger is 26 and is a 'Spindles Farm' survivor. He has Cushings / PPID but is still full of life. These 2 came to Frugaldom via a rescue centre.


"Don't worry, I'll eat it off your head."

"Seriously, I'm eating it off as quickly as I can, just you have a snooze, I'll be done in no time."

All the ponies were brought to the yard area last night so we could have peace to work on the rack, where we are tackling yet more drainage to combat the mud problems.

Now that I have this blog back up and running, I'll try to update it daily as work progresses at the Frugaldom project. Interesting times ahead, thats for sure!

We are already halfway through March 2020 and the world is in absolute chaos with the declaration of the Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic. Everything around us is moving towards lockdown, there are near riots at supermarkets for toilet rolls and basic groceries and Frugaldom's official opening probably won't be happening this year after all. No matter, we have food in the cupboards, a roof over our heads and about 5 hectares of land to turn into a self-sustainable microholding with nature reserve and safe living space for the ponies, ducks and chickens that have been rehomed here for one reason or another.

We enjoy simple, frugal living, arts, crafts, attempting to grow our own food and developing Frugaldom so you can all come for a visit and experience the place for yourselves.

Look what's survived all the ice and freezing weather! every day there is more frog spawn appearing in the ponds and lochs, promising us that Spring is just around the corner.

Two more weeks until we reopen and welcome our first visitors.

See you soon!
