His name will come. It will suit him. We just have to wait until it arrives and then we will know.
(I think you can guess where I spent my morning)
On another note, we are now five testicles less at Thordale. Tiddles was gelded. Lambie was successfully castrated but sadly Lambert was not. He has a retained testicle lurking somewhere so he needs a general anaesthetic and laparotomy. Hopefully the vets will locate the errant ball and remove it. All the boys were very good and I am glad it has been done. A necessity that needed doing. So fingers crossed for Lambert. We will attempt this in ten days.
I know, I know, why would I waste my money on a GA for a sheep, but Lambert is Lambie’s best friend and they are my responsibility. A monorchid sheep is a liability when you live in the middle of the scattald (open hill). So, it will be done because that is what needs to happen.
So all the boys are walking a bit funny around Thordale today!
