Future Farmer: 5-year-old Giles Apsey.


Giles was a year old when Fluffy was born – she was one of a triplet who needed to be bottle fed. He took full responsibility for her feeds and made sure she was well looked after. Fluffy is now four and Giles turned five just a few days after this photo was taken! Fluffy had twins in March – Giles was tucked up fast asleep during the birth, but when he woke and heard the exciting news, he ran outside to see her for cuddles. He made sure Fluffy had fresh water and hay, and that the lambs had a warm cosy bed of straw.
Giles loves learning about farming – his family live on his grandads farm in Charlton Musgrove. He helps with collecting the eggs, getting the cows in, chasing the naughty piglets – and anything else he’s allowed to, under the guidance of his grandad Pat and dad Roger, with help from his mum Emily and brothers James and Charlie.
