Well at last we have a bit of Spring and if you look very closely at my not very brilliant telephone camera photos you will see the evidence with our lovely friends the Cranes (the little black spots in the big blue bit) flying North again, and amazingly they are pretty much flying on the same day as they have been ever since we moved here.
You are quite correct there was no blog last week and I have no excuse other than fatigue from quite a hectic week. Since we last communicated we have had 60 lambs so in between bottle feeding, shoveling silage (about 400 kilos a day) feeding hay, carting water and moving fences not to mention running the butchery there is not a huge amount of time left. So onward and upward.
These 2 little bubbas hitched a lift home the day before our light dusting of snow and suggested we take a selfie in the car. Both are back in the shed running around like lunatics.
Now I had hoped that with our new technology in the form of satellite supplied internet, I could upload a video for you all to watch of us messing about in the shed on a Sunday afternoon doing chores, wearing out the children etc, however we are still in the age of old technology capitalism and apparently I have to upgrade to a different (you guessed it) more expensive package to do so. Once I have fathomed out to upload it on to the Facebook page, if I can, I will put it there instead.
Here is Jack, again, modelling the latest design in sheep moving equipment by Quadcrate. As you can see he has settled in well and was not at all bothered by the cage, in fact he is in love with the Quad and enjoys chasing after it at any opportunity to his detriment as the other day he thought it would be fun to bite the tyres and now has a grazed eyebrow from where he fell over. Below is the quadcrate doing a real job. I think the quad is Gavins favourite piece of equipment now as well.
See you all soon
(Gavin just walked in 61 lambs as of now)
