Westhill Review of 2013

Just sitting here with a drop of sloe gin reflecting on the year and whether it has been a good one or a bad one overall.
January saw me huddled in the hay stack with the girls and snow outside.
February, the snow was long gone and the sun made an appearance.
By March thoughts had turned to halter training which was not uniformly successful.

April and the lambs came with Reg coming to grips with life in the kitchen.
May brought the start of shearing - but a lot was delayed due to rain.
June and we had grass! . . . and cria!
More halter training in July and I discovered the truth in the saying - larger ladies should not wear horizontal stripes.
August and we had Ellingham Show - not sure what every one is looking at, probably me weeping in a corner!
Calm in September!
Then August saw a hall load of fleece being sorted before being sent away.
On to November and the arrival of the Ram
And so to December which is almost over and has to be the month of Bert - but that is a tale for another day.
