Out of sheep
« on: October 21, 2012, 10:43:21 pm »
Well that's me out of sheep for now, sent my last five to the market, the purebreds made peanuts and the crosses made good money, doesn't make a lot of sense. All I need to do now is get my bits and bobs off the field and ask for a refund on my rent money. Which I think he should give me in view of the fact he's put me in the position of having to sell the stock. At least the chickens and bees are happy on our field.  :D

Oh that's a shame, especially as it sounds like it wasn't your choice really :-[
Hope you get to carry on enjoying the chooks and bees though :thumbsup:
