Here is the Mummy who opened the floodgates. Number 88 and though it is a little deceiving she has twins in the trailer with her. She got cross waiting for Gavin to move them from one field to another for more green grass and took her children on walkabout for 24 hours. We thought that would be it and the foxes would help themselves to the babies during the night, but she turned up the following day next to the gate like she had just been down to the shops, and requested to have the gate opened and be let back in with her children. Not so stupid hey.
Finally today after managing to find more than 5 spare minutes in his day Gavin has evicted some sheep from the sheds onto the grass next to the sheds which means that he only has half the amount of silage to shovel. 42 buckets, compared with the staggering 80 something at its height in the depths of winter. He says it is a huge relief. Now all he has to do is move fences all the time....At least he has a friendly Quad to assist him this year. One last piccie before I sign off. Our new rouge de l'ouest sheep released with children. enjoying the sunshine and space.
See you all soon
