I will be sorting out sheep today and moving some of them to new grazing. I will also be sorting out the ewes and deciding who will be sold in the cull ewes at market, always a hard and sad decision but I cannot keep ewes that are so old they have no teeth nor those that either did not get in lamb last time or who are unlikely to get in lamb this year.
Pete is coming back from visiting friends today with a new welder to re do our charcoal burner which is made out of an old domestic oil tank. We have another tank to join it in our woodland when finished. The picture is of the charcoal burner just before shutting it down to cook.
