So I am aware that there were concerns that the sheep were missing…………they aren’t! In fact we have some sheep lodging with us for a while, 45 mules……..which are sheep ( ugly sheep) not like our Ryelands in that they run away from us. However they will eat the grass and fertilise the ground and do provide 40p per week per head, so OK we are not raking it in but it all helps 🙂
The other sheep, the beautiful ones, are all ok and soon to be having Kermit over to their field for a while. One of the jobs this weekend coming is to try the raddle harness on Kermit so that could be a possible job for Charlotte and Kate 🙂
Other news is that Benson go a new jumper ….. equafleece……. fabulous and he has worn it almost non stop, he has a green one too for special occasions!
Uncle John came and inspected us and I think we passed the test. It was lovely to see him and to share in the experience of him seeing the farm for the first time for real. He is an avid blog follower so his feedback was valuable.
The 2nd batch of pork was delivered and collected last weekend and we were really glad we had set aside 1/2 a pig for us …………as it was / is delicious and we have had good feedback from our customers too 🙂
We are currently in the process of getting order forms out to all those who have expressed an interest in our next ( February 2011) batch, which I think are nearly all sold, so we are on the lookout for another batch of weaners!
So life continues in its own hectic way….. Kate is full of cold and struggling a bit this week. I am a bit tired and have lost lots of things I need… my glasses….. my id card for work….. all found but adding to the general busyness of our lives. Also……………..it is so dark so early 😦
Hey ho !!
