False Alarm

Not only were there no lambs last night - there are also no lambs today!  Apparently star gazing and rolling around are only signs things are imminent.  What does imminent mean?  Who knows!  So today we have had more intermittent back hunching, rolling, upward gazing, up and downing - but no lambs.  We now have a bet going - I say one tomorrow, Sam says Monday and Carl says Tuesday.  The prize is a Smarties Easter Egg.  Sam's sheep look very large, hot and uncomfortable.

And here is enormous George (Called Georgina by the Shepherd's Lady as she was born on St George's Day).

This afternoon we had visitors looking at the alpacas and then, with Andy's spinner, Sam got all paddocks that needed it done in a very quick time, I topped a few nettles and docks while Carl was stuck with the job of finishing off the patio doors and window.  He made up for it this evening by steam cleaning the SAME with Sam - which they both found very exciting!


  1. Fingers crossed for you getting the Easter egg Rosemary...surely!

  2. You know what they say....A watched Pot..n all that !......the sheep are looking massive...hopefully sometime soon !.........Jayne
