Just spent ages trying to remember my Google password as dear Sam had logged me out - gave up and did a new one in the end.

I don't know what the weather is like where you are - but here it is boiling.  The pregnant girls have been hot and have either spent their time in the bushes or in the paddling pools.  I still have, despite best efforts, a few to shear.  Thunderstorms and rain on the way they say.

Mind you, it is probably hotter where the three girls have gone!  A long journey for them but they have arrived safely and have a lovely new home.  I rather wish I was there!

We have a lot planned for this weekend and how we will fit it all in is beyond me - but, where there is a will . .
And . . . there are still about 10 sheep to shear!  My meticulously detailed list sailed away in the breeze so I am not sure who is still left to do and when I try to count they will not stand still!  Lambs are growing well and even the BWM look to be growing quicker this year.  I weighed a few last night and the heaviest of the ones I weighed was 31kg.  He was born in the middle so I have to get everyone weighed next week.  Got to sort them soon before I start getting attached to too many of them - like little Fu Manchu here

  1. Love Fu Manchu! Hope you manage to get your shearing finished whilst it's hot and dry! We have wall to wall rain today so it's indoor jobs and a bit of getting wet in between!
