Update on the latest with the flock, as today appeared to be a dry day we decided to take out the rams and put all the breeding ewes together .
We haltered the two boys out in the field easily and proceeded to put them in their new paddock they were really good they said hello and then Dillon decided to make sure T knew who was top sheep T submited and ran off.
We went to move the ewes to their new accomodation as we were sorting them out Dillon was still chasing T about, I happened to turn around to witness Dillon battering poor T who seemed to have got hung up in the fence and his head looked as if it was at a strange angle his legs dangling of the ground he looked dead we rushed over shouting at Dillon to get away ,we extracted T from the fence he was alive but very shocked ,
we took him to another paddock and he seemed to be ok ,later today we put a wether and a young ram in with him and all appears fine at present.
I think all would have been well this morning if T hadn't got caught up in the fence by his horns and could have ran away,thank goodness we hadn't gone to far away.
We will try to put them all together a little later this week.
The ewes all seem fit and well and the three lambs from last year are running and jumping and getting on the two old timers nerves who every so often give them a good hiding.
lambing is the next date in the diary hopefully the ewes are pregnant and we will have some nice lambs ,but before that Rob my youngest son and his partner are expecting their first baby in March.So lots to look forward to .
