Pepper & Mocha go on their holidays

It has been another busy day, starting off this morning with the muck truck and cleaning all the paddocks. It never ceases to amaze me how much 'out put' you get from the herd. Hopefully the manure collectors will be round soon as the pile is growing rapidly.

Pepper and Mocha (our two sheep) have gone on their annual holiday to see Alan's tups (or rams, depending on where you are reading this!). It is slightly later than normal this year. As the weather has been so poor, and all the ploughing and sewing hasn't been done it is now going to have wait until the spring, which means lambing has had to be put back a couple of weeks. It would be impossible to lamb and sew at the same time.

It also means that we should have our lambs after the grass has had chance to start growing. Hopefully we will get a decent spring and summer next year, we are certainly over due one!
