Hooray, the sheep are here!!
« on: March 21, 2008, 07:00:32 pm »

Hello all

We have just collected our sheep,
Elsie, a suffolk cross, with her two 8 day old lambs and Spot a purebred suffolk born 23rd Dec 2007.
They all seem to like their new home and have mown some grass already.

Have sat in stable and introduced ourselves, the password seems to be 'food'.

Happy days.

All we need now is some nicer weather.

If the sun shines tomorrow, will take some pics and then figure out how to post them.

The sheep are grazing happily with Elsie popping back to the shed every ten minutes to feed her lambs,
we have had every shade of weather today and the lambs have decided they are not coming out unless the sun shines!

Hi all,
Elsie and Spot have explored most of their field this morning,
the lambs have been racing each other from stable to Elsie and back again
 but when they want feeding, they make mum come back to the stable!
Weather not exactly inclement but pretty close.
Thanks for favourable response to site, first one we have done, we now know what
'writers block' is.
