tis the one I haven’t got……
Good news is Red is off to a new home. I shall miss him but he just isn’t too good with sheep or cats and well tats not too good here about……
A GSD Rescue have really been kind and I will take him up-country on Tuesday. Then off to London to get 3 sheeps 🙂 It seemed silly to go up that far and so near and not get them and thanks to a very good pair of friends I have been able to do it. Will get them from the farm on Wednesday and be home for tea… that’s the cup of not necessarily by tea time lol.
The names are going to be Ermentrude, Esmerelda and Evelyn and they are the older one (6-7) and then two youngsters of 2. Alba will like having two near her age I think. Ermentrude is the Oxford Down and the 2 other (I think they were called Ryelands) will have to wait and see who gets which name but I think it suits them
Thats a ryeland but I might be wrong on the name and they could be something else lol.
The trailer has been repaired and painted … it started like this and is up in Southampton so will pick it up on the way through. It’s not a big trailer but its got room for Alba and could get 3 of her in it so these are smaller than her…. Should be ok but wont know till I get there and might have to go back. it is a 4’x6′ so it should be ok.
It tows nicely as well as being smaller in width then the car (just) and well it seemed like a good idea but well i did put Alba in it and its 3″ wider than she is long so ……. Will have to see but think they will be ok.
The breed description for the Ryeland is ewes weight approx 50 kl…. Wish is 80 and Bre and Alba are a good 65 each so they are small. The Oxford are smaller than Wish and Albs and Ermentrude (who I met) is smaller than Bre so the trailer should be fine….. I so hope it is lol.
Kinda excited …. but…. the downside is as you know we have been nursing Wish through till Bre has the new sheep and well when I come back from Scotland I will have to get the vets out and see what they think…… I know the answer but I hope I am wrong……
You know I been so tired the last week and half my muscles are aching as well as the joints swollen. I came off the mtx cus it made me feel rough and has done for the last 3 years nearly…. I did forget to take it as you all know and from that it seemed it wasn’t doing much but the last week the joints have really gone swollen so maybe it was. It’s just a trial and well they can’t get the blood out so the blood tests have become a real problem….. and I have got worried about the continual stabbing as well as a knotted vein in my elbow from so many needles in it.
The back and neck jabs have helped but Red pulled me to bits at the vets and that seems to have jarred everything up since. he goes again on monday but this time he will be in a halti! Not that he is much better i that but he isn’t worse lol.
Took this at the sale last week… Haz in cute mode suckling his blankie lol. Least while he is doing that he isn’t eating the car lol. Oh he has done some car damage in the time I have had him… totally ate all the seats at a few sales in my old one except the driver’s seat which he never touched but the rest went…. Now I have a decenter car I have sussed it and he has his blankie (duvet and towels) to suck, rip and annihilate lol. Not sure you can see he is sucking it but I promise you he was.
Forecast for tomorrow is rough and though I shall wake up to see if the weather is dry I don;t think I will be doing a sale so haven’t loaded up tonight…. If its dry I will start the day hurting lol. Mind I did a sale this week and it so hurt I even had to go out and sit in the car for a min…. really have got back pain again and no reflexes so roll on seeing the back specialist at last
Only taken the 30 years since I last saw one lol. Something is amiss though as reflexes have honestly got bad or non existent depending on how bad I am at the time of testing for them.
The horses are growing big thick coats a bit and the cold is coming but I took these last year and well its Gypsy and Teg and they are kind of cute….. I must be getting old lol.
and something must have been well interesting in the field today….
Though September this was a real winter type sunset
Right I shall go before I fall asleep in this armchair again… Woke up in it at some horrible time of early morning last night and well hottles and my own blankie calls lol.
You all stay warm and take care x
