Ground source

Today Kate has had her last medicine drench, eventually!  She is obviously feeling much better in her self because this morning I failed miserably to catch her.  She knew I wanted her so wouldn't come anywhere near me, not even for her breakfast or the new hay. 

I manged to get one hand on her but failed to keep hold, but this afternoon Dave came along at feed time and offered reinforcements which meant we were able to catch her.  It is the first time she has been a pain and not wanted to take it so I ended up wearing some of it!

Up on the hill the slinky's have been laid today in readiness for our ground source heat pump.  I think the chaps would be rather muddy by the end of the day.  It's a good job mud is good for the skin.

I nipped out with Alan this morning and somehow managed to buy more sheep, oh well I did sell my beloved MG yesterday so that can contribute towards their cost; it was supposed to be going towards the bathrooms!
