Veterinary (said in a “James Herriot” Yorkshire accent, please) came to Thordale for Esja’s vet inspection as she is sold.
While he was here, I asked him to look at Delia because, you know me, I worry.
Apart from being a bit stiff in her legs (old laminitis many years back before her time at Thordale), he said she was doing well. I was very relieved as I had asked Floss yesterday whether now was the time and she emphatically shouted at me “no”.
Lambie and Ster showed off by bouncing around the shed – Veterinary (NB: the Herriot voice, please), said they were very funny and good entertainment. He then said the media would love to hear about an odd woman who kept tame sheep like dogs.
Ahem! (who is he calling odd?)
I think it is perfectly normal. More people should have tame dog-like sheep. Best fun ever.
Btw, this is a true all-four-feet off the ground bounce by Ster. He can boing along like this with sheer happiness for yards!
As today was a beautiful calm Shetland winter day, I mooched around the croft taking photos of everyone up round the house.
These days are rare but it was nice to see everyone chillaxing (did I seriously just write that cringeworthy word?)
(look at Hjalti’s little k-nobbly k-nees – he is such a darling).
We tend to wear our food here.
I am still in shock at being called “odd”. Me? Who knew?!
