This wee one arrived at the feed this morning, both Mother and her absolutely soaking, born overnight, so that is us underway. Callie’s tup delivered, all good.
Sunday afternoon the low pressure came in and it started raining, it never stopped until this morning, at times so heavy it was rattling off the roof.
The burns were running, the field was just a sponge and it was cold, here was me praying we had no lambs.
The sheep were pretty hungry but once they had their feed they were off to the forest.
Yesterday was our Wedding Anniversary, 6 years married. I had planned to go to Portree as the anniversary present was in the post but that was scuppered with the gale. Hoping to make it tomorrow though.
Spot the Ewe!! If you can see it, this Ewe is an escapee, it prefers Dry Harbour to Big Harbour. I caught it a couple of weeks ago then it disappeared again. I found it to-day. It has tried to get out along the shore/cliffs but is now stuck. So when the weather calms down we’ll go in the boat and persuade it to go back up into the field. That will be fun.
So that was to-day, I had plans to fix the hatch in the ceiling at the Lodge and it is almost there. But Lambing took over and I spent most of the morning getting the lambing bag together, checking the Ewes out and getting prepared for the the whole of April. The Tup was only here for a short time so we know the dates and that will mean a quick lambing we hope. Fingers crossed that the last three day Monsoon will be the worst of it but I see it is going to be pretty cold this weekend and into next week.
