because yesterday, I saw something I'd never seen before and wished I could have recorded it. I popped out to collect eggs. As I went into the field, I looked left under the willow and saw the three sheep lying down. Nothing unsual in that, but one of the young cockerels was lying on Juno's back. Now, I've seen lambs lying on their mother's back, but a cockerel? By the time I got back with the camera, everyone was up and looking for food, but I definitely saw it...

I keep goats and my chickens ride around and sleep on their backs all the time though I have never seen them on the sheep.Last week when it was time for the dreaded autumn worming, feet and lice check my pygmy goat Smartie stood with his eyes closed in a far corner of the barn with six hens sitting on a row on his back. We think he was pretending to be a hen roosting bar to get out of treatment but his fat tummy gave him away!
