I started supplementing my flock tonight, getting ready for next years lambing before this year’s lambs have left. The lambs leave 2 weeks Friday but I got 5 ewes from an old school friend, Ally Williamson, tonight.
Ally was more than willing to pose for a picture for the blog – although I’m under strict instructions to spell his name correctly (not Ali) and make it clear they are Bragar sheep, even though we collected them from a Bru croft!
Anyway, I took the ewes home, two 2 year olds, one 3 and two 4. I gave them a quick squirt of wormer, before they went onto the lush grass of North Dell
Beast of a trailer, isn’t it? Built by my uncle many years ago, needs a lick of paint this winter!
Quick squirt in the mouth….
Before threatening to give my brother Innes a squirt too! Thanks to him for the pictures.
I had to rush off tomplay 5-a-side football so I have put the sheep infront of my house for the time being, I’ll move them in with the rest tomorrow. That’s all the ewes I want to buy, just a few ewe lambs and a ram now. Plus sell my own rams!
