Sheep race preparation

It has been another busy day, I really do wonder what on earth I did with all my time before we got alpacas. I still have few things left on the list so this will be a short blog tonight.

All the latest knitwear is labelled and ready to go tomorrow to the whalton village show. It is going to be rather hectic for us, not only have I got my knitwear there I also have the alpacas and sheep for the sheep race - more on that tomorrow though.

Because of the restrictions relating the movement of sheep, they had to be taken to the showground today. Things didn't quite go according to plan when one of my sheep racing team spotted fresh grass and jumped the trailer ramp! After a few cross words I managed to get them all in and they are now in where they should be.

Saying that Mia, my escapologist sheep, doesn't usually stay where she is supposed to so I just hope she is still there in the morning and doesn't try to make her way home. She was none to impressed when I left her in the company of 'wild' sheep.

Hope your day was really good!
Those sheep are in training for their sheep racing! Sam is intrigued and looking forward to hearing about it - he's already eyeing up his sheep with the view to training them for racing!
