Sunbathing in January

It has been a lovely day today, the flood waters have dried slightly and the snow continues to melt. They boys and weanlings fields are almost snow free, sadly the girls and the sheep will have a little longer to wait but at least they have some grass.

I was finally able to get the muck truck out and do some proper cleaning. The fields always feel and look so much cleaner when they have been sucked clean rather than raked clean.

They boys field is now as clean as their shelter was yesterday - it wasn't as clean this morning, they are naughty boys!

Whilst I was cleaning I took the opportunity to take a couple of pictures, here we have our Supreme Champion stud, Legend of Spartacus, sunning him whilst keeping a watchful eye on the girls who are a couple of fields away. Gianmarco's Masterpiece is to his right with Loki in the back ground.

As you can see the weanlings were tucking into their lunch in the sunshine too. Tenzing is having his usual roll on the trough with Palm-Olive behind him and Star behind her. Duke and Heidi are sharing the second tough and not coming up for air until they have licked it clean!
