At last, hurrah, Lambie and Lambert have moved into the field. The Minions have given up chasing them and everyone is getting along fine.
Obviously, Lambie and Lambert come in at night. They go happily into our small old vegetable garden at the back of the house and have a lovely shed with lots of hay to sleep in if the weather gets particularly bad.
(and yes, there is a radio in there too – remember Lambie loves classical music!)
So my little “Boys-enberries”, as they are now known, are doing very well, perhaps a little too well. Half rations of hard food now as Lambert wobbles when he walks! Despite trying to live as normal sheep, they are still very loving, devoted and cuddly. Sheep really are the easiest of pets. Every home should have one!
The horses remain in their big field, as the weather has disintegrated drastically these past few weeks but they are happy.
The Minions are on the other side of the fence in another field. They dot in and out endlessly from one field to another, crawling under fences and giggling at me. I have given up trying to contain them. It is a thankless task and they always appear if there is food.
BeAnne keeps guard at all times. She loves being outside to repel all borders or at least tell them endlessly she would repel them – methinks that would be Yorkshire Terrier side of her family.
Over the scattald or hill, at Clothie, is Hetja and Hjalti. Hetja, I think, knows there is a handsome prince not very far away but, at the moment, he has not cottoned on so there is no endless gazing and not eating.
So this is my set-up at Thordale. They keep me as busy as I want to be or I can leave them knowing they all have food and shelter if they want it. It is a good set-up.
