sheep and weekends shouldn't go together......

toooo many weekends lately we have been doing sheep stuff..........just couldn't do it any other way........this was a photo i snapped this morning - crisp, bright and early............my poor body was aching this afternoon.............even managed to tackle a sheep that jumped out of the race here...........thank goodness there weren't any videos around as it would have suited funniest home videos..........lol.........and wasn't terrible elegant............ I would have taken more photos I just didn't have time to stop and take them.......
if anyone so much as mentions the word "sheep" next weekend look out...........
the garden sculptures continue to change constantly..............so much of my garden is buried under "umbrella grass"............
a chooky blog has to have some chooks occasionally - here are my new girls and boy..............this is my handsome black "ancona" rooster
hopefully I will be able to breed him with these 2 gorgeous girls..........black ancona hens......aren't they just the prettiest girls......so fancy.........the photos were while they were still in the cage I brought them home in as today they were a little shy and hiding under the trees...............
and while I was there getting the other chookies I just had to get a couple of these red ancona hens too...........
a random feather...........
one of the few beautiful things I managed to find in my garden..............
Catch you later..............

  3. Hey Donna! WOW! It sure sounds like those woolly jumpers are keeping you busy! Well done on the tackle - would have loved to have seen it! :0) And just think, elegant or not ... if someone had videoed it you may have won money or a holiday on Funniest Home Videos! Would have been a shoot out between your sheep tackle and my leaning tower of clothesline! Tee! Hee! Hee! Your new chookies sure are handsome - bet they lay yummy eggs! :0) Hope you manage to steal some stitching ... or resting!! ... time real soon- Bear Hugs! KRIS

  16. Calling into say THANK YOU!! Couldn't, after all these years work out what had caused the no reply issue, came to your blog and "ou La!!' Hopefully fixed! Tell me if it worked...unless it hasn't just this once because this has been opened while I am playing on mine in another tab!
    I, too have been crazy with sheep and buying new chooks...silver dorkings, barred plymouth tocks, barnevelders and silver laced wyandottes...what fun! Tracey

  23. Are they good layers. It must be a farming weekend all round...we built some laying boxes for our hens today. They were very interested in what was being built for them.
