Well, that's tupping over for another year. The ewes and ewe lambs are now all together in Sheepfold, while Leo and Dickie are reunited in Home Field.

I spoke to the scanner last week; she needs to see the ewes before the 17th January, so I've marked the diary to call her after the festive season.

Sheepfold's pretty bare so I'm putting hay out - if they need it, they'll eat it.

Pickle's lame again - she's one of this year's lambs. She was lame a week ago, so I trimmed the foot and sprayed it with Terramycin. She seemed sound but I noticed she was a bit lame again tonight. We'll catch her tomorrow, clean it with Milton and spray it again; we'll repeat Saturday and Sunday and if that doesn't work, I'll ring the vet for an antibiotic on Monday.
