Just about ready...
Well, well - I think it's fair to say that Tiny Farmer has had a good lesson in fence buidling! In preparation for the new lambs and ram arriving next week we had to build a fence on another field - this is to keep the lambs away from the ram. The length of the fencing was only 250 metres, but it did need 4 corner posts driven into the ground and has 5 strands of wire. No doubt many many miles were walked in the 6 hours it took to erect the fence. Luckily the weather was kind and it was a sunny day.
So that's it - I think we are just about ready for the new arrivals.
We just have to hope that the ram harness arrives in time now as we only ordered that today - fingers crossed and luckily it's not being sent by post. We will attach a brightly coloured crayon to the harness and will be able to see which ewes have been served by the ram...but more about that next week as it all unfolds.
