More sheep I'm afraid.

It's hard to keep up round here. Heather and Gwyn came today to 'change our sheep'. They've had a couple of days on our field and it's time, now they've bonded, to go out into the big wide world. The ones on the other field were 'changed' yesterday.

The stock trailer squeaked to the gate, its passengers bleating and bawling until it was their turn to be let out. Same routine as before. Here are the last 4 lambs waiting to be reunited with their mums. For the 'aw, cute!' factor click on the picture.

The cute factor is definitly there, but what a lot of work with all the coming and going. I think I'll continue to enjoy the lambs from afar - they are the only sign of spring over here where winter still has us in its grip.

Aww, they are cute! They remind me of when I was a kid... We were at my brother's godparents' smallholding and somebody suggested I try to catch a lamb! I was only around 5 or 6 and I wasn't very successful!

I am afraid of sheep, as it happens...
