Should have placed that bet

Well at least I can predict one birth, Pepper my other sheep produced two lovely little lambs first thing. I just managed to see the second one popping out.
Two little girls, one black and one white. The black one is almost identical to Mocha's daughter so that is going to get confusing!
The alpacas continue to enjoy the sunshine and dust baths with no new additions - I am trying to be patient Mark but I'm not very good at it. Having had one enormous baby last year from a girl who hung on I am also slightly paranoid!
Yet again I have spent all day in the fields and have cleaned up again, you could eat your dinner off our grass at the minute. It's good timing actually as the manure collectors are obviously busy readying their grounds for veggies and the like because as soon as I replenish the supply someone comes to collect it.

Hi Debbie,
You know what they say about a watched pot! never boils, that baby is doing the same, glad the sheep are running true to form and have produced lovely twin girls for you, sounds like you have been busy, are there any more brickets on the menu...or is all the poo taken for the garden !..Jayne

Bricks are on the list for today but I am leaving Molly to think about the situation for a bit first!!
