And introducing Derek!! Here he is along with his new wife! He is about the height of my knees and very pleased with himself! He and the 3 others have all settled in well and have 2 small paddocks and a shelter for their comfort.............very pampered this as the only time my other sheep have a shelter is when lambing!
The other picture is some of my Dorset Down flock with Henry the ram ( re christened Gordon Ramsey by the family adjoining the field!) showing his raddle harness. All ewes now have blue behinds and he now has a green crayon attached so now we keep an eye out for anyone who is served a second time.
The weather here was warm and wet.....until last week when it suddenly froze, a bit of a shock but means beautiful days with wonderful autumn colours.
