1. Single, very lively black lamb born this morning.
2. Little Wee (Mitzi) was spayed this morning and she was furious about it. When I picked her up the vet said she was quiet and would not eat so to keep her quiet and not let her out for a few days. Maybe try her on a spoonful of special recovery cat food later - but I knew, Little Wee was giving me A Look! As soon as we got home she shot out the basket, ate an entire tin of Whiskas and three saucers of milk, shot out the cat flap before I could stop her and then spent the rest of the day following me around biting my ankles!

7. Cassie has taken to guarding the foot water trough now so extra water troughs are being made.
8. Carl and Sam have been over to Landrover Man's this evening to weld up 'The Knocker' for Valtra Man. He came round this afternoon upset that he'd broken his knocker so he couldn't bang his post in - all sorted now.
Bed time, I think! Well, after checking if any more lambs are likely tonight.
A better penning solution! - After a long "family illness" and a subsequent reduction of our herd, I am back to report a more recent enhancement to Easter-Wood. One of the problems we ...
