The animals are in control

It seems that right now the animals are in charge here. The ewes are checked periodically during the night to make sure there is no trouble because trouble does often happen at night for some reason. Thankfully though there has been no sign of trouble. During the day there are the usual chores plus Grace and Hope are on lamb playing duty. It is not surprising that they can not bear to eat our home produced lamb meat when they become attached to them when they are tiny.

Sometimes the sheep just want to have a chat over lunch.

Even Puss has taken over the kitchen. She isn't allowed in the sink but she doesn't care.

we just see the pretty photos, but getting up in the night a couple of times to check on the lambs? Sounds like hard work. Animals do have a way of making their own rules dont they?

The lambs are so cute! I often get up too in the middle of the night to check on my chickens when I hear foxes around. Do the foxes get the lambs - are they the trouble makers?

Hi Tracy

Just wondering, do you have any trouble with dingos in your area?
