The Dorset lambs have had a long day out in the field today.. the longest yet. Yesterday they only had the afternoon and came in at 4.00 for their tea.... all of them were exhausted and most laid down in a heap of sleep... Annie was so tired that she went to sleep where she stood... I've never seen that before, and little Ellie sprawled on my lap with her head in my hand and snoozed until I had to go home...
But today they were much more used to the outdoors and the fresh air and came back into the barn ready to fill their little tummies... the only little lady who likes to eat her nuts separately is Ellie and she has her own after a cuddle... today with Nigel..... he's so much bigger than me that she gets lost in his arms... but she loves being squooshed.... look at that little face!!!!
Welcome to my Blog
My long suffering partner and I love where we live and our growing flock of Ryeland and Mule sheep. At the rear of our home we tend a pretty cottage garden and at the front, just over the road, a walled and terraced vegetable garden which steps down to Walden Beck. We grow our own fruit and vegetables, and also keep a few hens and hives of bees...... And we run this lovely little country shop!
