"s" day.........

Today was supposed to be "s" for sewing day not for sheep..........unfortunately for me we did not get all the job done so back we go again this morning.........hopefully we should be finished by lunch..........

Here are some photos from yesterday at the sheep yards........





Sorry the photos are not so good but I took them with my mobile phone........see the black sheep it has grown heaps.........

this one below - top left the mumma's are standing under the tree in the distance............don't worry not many came back to find them...........they are happy to be rid of them............





It was good in the morning as there were clouds and a nice breeze but after lunch I was in the hot sun and it was no fun and it was starting to get dusty.............yuck.........

we were weaning the sheep which means taking the ewe mums from the lambs (babies)...........the lambs also needed a ear mark (to identify them as ours) and tag.........(we are not allowed to sell them without a tag in their ear) we will leave the lambs in the yards and feed them for a few days.......

Here is a photo of fairy girl in her motor bike gear..........we did lots of this while the visitors were here.........motor bikes and the pool were the highlights..........she was so cute with her dress on under her motor bike gear..........the kids mad a crusty demons track..........they did thousands of laps around........you try keeping up with 4 motorbikes...........I left it to the dads...........

SSCS - I will post as soon as the last few presents turn up.........couple of girls still waiting to receive..........presuming held up in customs............well that is what I hope...........and if you want to see what most have received go back a few posts and I have 10 posts so far with pics of presents............

  3. Why do you wean the sheep, here we don´t do that until the lambs are sent to be slaughtered.
