The lambs look very well, a word of caution lambs are very curious and will nibble everything and have been known to choke on plastic

Had a quick peek at the building (love a bit of good fencing) album - made me smile - that van is likes 'Pete's Pockets'. Did you have the sheep running around to the front and getting back in again......

Rear ends!!! Sunday dinners more like.  We have a community skip in a layby next to our hill  field gate , we get all sorts of rubbish blown on. The skips I agree with but folk take advantage and use them for things that can go in black bags for the bin men instead of things too large for the bin men to carry so we get lambs playing with sanitary towels, processed food wrappings and even wage slips and threatening letters!!! Unbelievable.
