Welcome to our new ‘a day in the life’ blog section where we’ll be handing over the laptop to the animals, bravely giving them the opportunity to tell you their thoughts on Glynn Barton, your holidays, Cornwall in general and they may even tell you a tale or two about Steve and Shirley. It seemed like a good idea at the time but we’re keeping our fingers crossed they can work out the keypad!
A day in the life…
Hello, we’re Del Boy and Rodney and we’re pigs. Yes, that’s right, pigs. We’re both five years old and love every minute at Glynn Barton Holiday Cottages. Well… every minute except January that is. To be entirely honest, we can’t wait to see all the families and children again. We know we’re not exactly one of the friendliest animals on the farm – that status can go to the Goats, they love a good tickle behind the ears – but that doesn’t mean we don’t care. We know we can be a bit grumpy at times and can, well… sleep a lot of the day in our shelter and appear to be generally uninterested but we love nothing more than when families come to watch us in the field. Apart from being fed by Steve and Shirley of course.
We’re on a strict diet (diet?! Have you seen our bellies!), that’s what they call it anyway and so they monitor our eating habits. They give the children Sow Rolls (if you ever get a change, do try one, they’re delicious) to give us at animal feeding time and for occasional treats we get bread, cakes and veg peelings when there are leftovers.
We’ve been lucky, there’s been quite a few leftovers this January but we do miss the children. Fortunately Willow and Billy the Goats have been keeping us entertained with their silly playful games but we’re looking forward to February Half Term and seeing lots of you again.
Do come and say hello! Please don’t pet us as we have long tusks but we do love watching the families and look forward to welcoming you all back to Glynn Barton Holiday Cottages.
