Sheep dog required

We have been up to the hill today, Paul and Dave have been doing some fencing whilst I organised the container so you can actually find things.
Things are progressing nicely, you can now see how the house is going to work now all the partitions are up for the stud walling.  I was hoping to see all the steels up for the shed, but that was obviously wishful thinking on my part, but that two is growing.

 All the sheep seem to have settled nicely.  I wanted to try and get them up onto the top of the hill but with just me and leg power I wasn't getting on very far.  Initially I could only see 12 sheep!  Where the other 83 had gone I don't know!

I think we will have to consider a sheep dog or something as the land isn't very level where the sheep are so rounding them up with the quad won't be easier either.

After an hour of me walking round trying to gather them up I gave up as a bad job only to see the following line heading in the right direction by the time I had reached the container.

That is a wonderful 'shed' What a huge amount of rubbish we could fit in there!
I too would love a sheep dog!
