Going into Stur yesterday the roads were fine and I planned to actually drive up Bell hill to do the animals but a meeting with the Shepherd at the bottom of the hill led to a change of plan. The hill is okay as far as the sheep field and then it is a big problem - a shaky woman had just given up and come back and the Shepherd advised not. I walked along to have a look and was glad I had not attempted it as the snow had compacted and kind of banked up on one side meaning any skidding pushed you over to the hill side - not good! Even this afternoon Sam's Land Rover slid on it. The cut is also not good news.
We had to dig our way in through the gate again.
The girls did venture away from the field shelter this afternoon - but not for long!
