All is quiet on the sheep front at the moment. The rams are engaged in their annual business with the ewes and we are disturbing the newlywed atmosphere as little as possible.

We left in the rams on 19 September so they have a few days left to make their mark. Six weeks will be enough for us to be watching and minding them next February and March. Equally, having a few straggler ewes lambing weeks after the rest of them means straggler lambs still hanging around after the rest have been sold.
