Peaches and Dyson an unlikely pair for herding...not sure what (?) as there were no sheep in the field at the time.... could have been birds/mice or maybe even moles. There are hundreds of mole hills in the front field and one of them even ventured into the kitchen the other night via a hole in the wall. That was an interesting experience as you don't often, if at all, see moles warming themselves by the fire on an average evening in the Dordogne. We were all so astonished that we negleted to take a photo, although I was more in a state of shock imagining what other beasties were able to access the house via the hole that had been so perfectly drilled through the insulation. Cat asissted maybe? They may have left said mole in the wrong place so mole had to make a plan for survival.....
We will never know.
As soon as the three little pigs have decided that Gavin is an OK chap then they will be allowed to play outside behind some very effective electric fence.
Here is Dyson working, resting and then reeeeaaallly resting. We have 34 lambs already present and correct and 10 baby goats. We await the main lambing period any day now. However we are lucky enough to have already had some recent practice with disturbed nights, thanks to Number 3 and Dyson, so we are full of the joys of spring and desparate to get started zzzzzzz.........
I leave you with some naughty goat kids and my birthday present twins from this morning.
See you all soon
