Do your own hedges and park it in shed it’ll do a lifetime. Cut to the country and you’ll need to change it far soo er and extra hrs on tractor. The money you got for doing the hedges will be long gone
But he likes it and can afford it so why not? I'd mow grass in good conditions all year round if I could but wouldn't do a day on a hedger, each to their own 👍

Were normally tested every 4 months but wev seemed to escape testin this summer
4 month here as well, was due at the end of April and tried to get our vet to do it before turnout but they told me they weren't testing due to covid. Got closed up at the middle of June and haven't heard a dickie bird from the dept since. Anything we need rid of can go to the meat plant so I'll not be chasing them for a couple of months yet.
 
Had test start Feb two inconclusive department was to test them but covid happened
Wanted tested before turnout vet did a herd test start may one went clear the other went down
Another test 3 weeks ago just kept alot of them in to much hassle to let them out between
Another inconclusive
