Celeb Brits Get Down and Dirty
Ah those Brits, always finding new ways to amuse themselves (and us). They've crowned kooky royals, sailed the seas, and produced designer sausage. And all of them seem to own castles with rolling hills (what luck!). But can they ever leave well enough alone? Nope. Now they're all refashioning these castles to suit new hobbies.
Who would have thought that adopted Brit Claudia Schiffer liked shoveling grain? With her bikini days behind her, the German supermodel has taken up animal farming at her Suffolk estate. According to Starpulse, she has three dogs, two sheep, four chickens, a pregnant pig, two black swans, four ducks, three tortoises, and a parrot. Not sure how the parrot fits into the retinue but we won't judge.
Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing is putting aside his Gibson Flying V in favor of a nine-iron. Did you know that he wanted to be a dairy farmer when he purchased Astbury Hall in 1985? Well, those dairy dreams are over and instead he's turning his estate into a golf course. Apparently 30 years of head banging hasn't affected his balance. Maybe he can give JT some pointers.
Now that his missus has flown the roost, film director Guy Ritchie is investing $13 million in his Wiltshire estate to make it more green and self-sufficient. You know what they say, out with the Madge, in with the veg!
What's next, barn raising in Wembley?
