Feels like an age since the second series of Clarkson’s Farm hit our screens. And, we have an age to wait for the next series. So, how will we cope until then?
Well, Clarkson is keeping us entertained with his column in The Sunday Times with little glimpses of what’s to come on Diddly Squat Farm in series three of the Amazon Prime Video hit series.
In his latest column the latest arrivals on the farm were branded “psychopaths” by his co-star. Earlier in the year he hinted at the addition of what seems to be an ever growing livestock on the Cotswold farm with the introduction of goats.
An Instagram post showed the playful animals climbing all over the presenter, and now he admitted that the goats were quite the handful.
He wrote: “Today I’m into goats. I just bought a fleet of 30 for a tenner each and so far things are going fairly well.
“They are not pretty little pygmies or some kind of rare breed that will produce jackets that Lisa can wear to Ascot. They’re just run-of-the-mill man-goats that I’ve bought simply to keep the brambles at bay.
“I was advised by Cheerful Charlie that they are psychopaths and he’s not alone in thinking this way. My dogs, for some reason, are terrified of them.”
He also said: “To keep them in place I have two layers of electric fencing. I’d love to say it wasn’t funny, watching them on day one as their noses got zapped. But it was. They actually say ‘Ow’. Just like I do.”
“My advice to anyone who wants a few animals for their weekend cottage paddocks – goats,” stating that “They’re fun, cheap, easy to keep.”
Last month a fan account got people’s hopes up with a post that insinuated it wouldn’t be long until the next series.
Clarkson replied by writing: “We actually won’t finish filming it till October.“There’s something we are trying which won’t be resolved till then. So it’s a while off yet.”
So, it looks like we’ll just have to keep an eye on updates from the farm shops Instagram and Clarkson’s column for now.
