It's a girl !!!!!!

Wahoo, Molly has given birth today to a lovely little girl - Someone missed out on a bargain there.

You won't believe it either, how much time have I spent in the field this week waiting for this moment and I left the field for half an hour at lunch time and she had her!

I'll fill you in with more photos and details over the coming days as it's getting late and I've had a really busy weekend and my bed is calling.

Our broadband was playing up again last night hence the lack of blogging. Both Paul & I spent all day raking leaves and cleaning resting paddocks of 'bits and bobs' that seem to appear in the winds. I also gave the field shelter a very thorough clean. I've decided my next shelter will have a concrete floor so it is easier to clean.

Today has been another busy one, the weanlings have had their toe nails cut and have moved paddocks onto some nice green grass which went down a treat. Their old field has therefore been cleaned and harrowed and will hopefully start to grow again real soon.

The lambs from last year have been tagged today. It's not a job I like doing so I usually get Paul to do it hence it's a weekend job. Thankfully they don't seem too bothered after the initial flinch.

The evening finished off herding three escaped cows of Alan Thompson (my farmer friend) which had escaped and were wondering up the road. Thankfully they were quite well behaved for escapees.

Incidentally Paul is returning to work with a war wound; he has a blister!!
