|Willow and Small|
Willow and Small have a few issues.. Willow delights in winding Small up and Small delights in chasing Willow. Small will zone in on Willow from the other side of the field, then sneak up on her while she sleeps, then let out a massive honk alarm in her ear! Suffice to say they don't get to hang out much together... I fear for their lives! Well.. I fear for Small's life anyway!
|Little Blue and the heavily pregnant HebXsuffolks|
At the moment I'm spending a lot of time just hanging out with the sheep. They're due to give birth any week now and so I'm keeping a beedy eye on them. This is my first ever lambing. I'm nervous but confident I've practiced enough. We're finishing their field shelter today and I'm going to set up a field office in their field, so I can continue to work on the Save Our Woods campaign but stay alert to any attacks by ravens/foxes/badgers.. some might say its not necessary but as it's my first time I think I'm going to spend as much time as I can with them!
|Cockeral. Cuckoo Marans.|
You might remember Cockeral. I got him and a couple of Cuckoo Marans hens a few months ago. Well, he's matured into a real beauty. I love the way he herds the hens and settles any disputes! He's very good at his job but mostly the ex-batts ignore him when he's trying to make them move somewhere they don't want to go! The hens lay the most beautiful eggs ever. Dark brown shells and deep orange giant yolks.. droOOol!
|Cockerals holy bum.|

Hope you're enjoying this beautiful Spring weather!
