Sun bathing

It has been another lovely day today, all the animals have enjoyed a spot of sunbathing. To be honest I think a few of the girls have been a little too hot. Mary and Willow have been sat down in the shade most of the day.

I scrubbed and refilled the girls water this morning as they are drinking a fair bit at the minute and I like to keep it clean and fresh. I hate to see fields with dirty water.

I got the weanlings old field harrowed this morning and the bits of dead grass and straw have been removed so hopefully that will recover as soon as it gets a bit of water on it, not that I really want it to rain.

As I've not shared any lamb photos with you yet I thought you might like to see some of this years additions. Here we have Pepper and her two tup lambs.Here we have Ruby and Annie.I haven't got a nice photo of Ebony's lamb yet. He is a real bruiser, although the poor little thing got pecked by the crows on Wednesday morning. Then this morning I went into the field to find exactly the same thing had happened to Pepper's white lamb. Horrible crows, maybe I should suggest to Paul he has crow pie to get rid of them - only kidding Jayne!
