Well, Milly's now got the hang of this suckling lark and she is now out in the field, in the sun, with the rest of the flock. However, Dan found her in the water bucket yesterday, bleating her head off, totally stuck. She's a canny wee thing, though, and is perfectly confident with people.

The tup lamb is pretty sturdy and Jinx is doing him well. I wish Jura would get on with the job though.

I'm planning to sell Buddy at the rare breed sale at Thainstone on the 1st May. This is a bit of a learning curve for me, as I've never sold anything through a market before. I can't decide whether I should put a reserve on him or not, and if so, how much. I don't really want to go all that way and NOT sell him, but on the other hand, I don't want him to go for a fiver. I'll hate to see him go, but I can't realistically keep him.
