Molly the Soay ewe without a milky bar appears to have responded to Greg and Kevin’s diligent ministrations or maybe she overheard the rather unsavoury discussion concerning her value as Sunday dinner. Sadly…or fortunately for the blonde ewe, Molly has barely enough covering to make a miniscule shepherds pie and even more fortunately, little Shrimp her lamb takes comfort from her inadequate mom. Kevin became a REAL farmer whilst bottle feeding the tiny lamb….Shrimp pooped on his leg. I guess they say you aren’t a rider till you have fallen off a horse, every farmer is bound at some time to feel the smelly, sticky warmth of excrement. Kevin now ensures that Shrimp’s butt is well padded with a well placed towel !
The rain has been falling …again. During some breaks in the heavy dark cloud cover Greg and Kevin have been erecting a fence. During the rain storms the boy team have been busily transforming a log into lumber and Kevin has been introduced to Greg’s arsenal of boy’s toys. Misty has been much on our minds but life on the ranch must continue.
Time to go, take care keep safe and dry, M
