    Naked attraction, horse girl.

    Phew, that’s a relief. @Weasel will be in there like a rat up a drainpipe.👍 Do weasels go up drainpipes?🤔

    Overdraft requirements for coming growing season.

    Doesn’t that make you an honorary member of the fourth category?

    I think I’ll make a start by stopping handing my landlord and my bank any more cash.👍 I don’t think it’ll go down well..... ‘Peddlers of unnecessary crap’ are harder of course, as they always have a convincing, well polished story to tell.

    Sheep dog

    A collie every time imo. All the Kelpies, Huntaways or crosses thereof that I have seen, have been very active dogs that need work, lots of work. Personally, I can’t imagine working sheep without dogs. I know you can train/bribe sheep to come to a feed sack, but surely little puts a smile on...

    Sheep Scanning

    Don’t be daft. They’re theaves once they’ve been shorn once. Tegs from new year until then, and double theaves once they’ve been shorn for the second time. If you fellas just agreed to adopt our logical system, it would make life so much simpler. None of this gimmer/gimmer hogg/etc to confuse...

    Housing wet sheep after dipping.

    Probably better to turn them out for a few hours at least, if it’s dry, if only to save the bedding. I shouldn’t think there’d be much point if it’s pee’ing down though. It won’t kill them either way.

    Flat kale

    A bit of potash may have helped perhaps, whether from the bag or muck? I’ve never seen Kale do that either.

    Why on earth would that be? Both supply nothing but N.

    In Wales, our devolved government has been trying very hard to remove the term ‘farmers’ from the system, instead replacing it with ‘land managers’. Basically to dilute the pot further, to include the forestry guys, rewilders, etc.....😡

    Batteries for leccy fencing sheep

    Halfords? We get the interim car service done there, to take advantage of their ‘brakes for life’ scheme on a car doing 30k miles a year. They quoted £120 for a new battery, which I had delivered from Tayna the next day for £60!

    Shipping by boat is pretty cheap. On your reasoning, why are Kubota tractors one of the cheapest over here, when they are made on the other side of the world (& far closer to you guys)?

    Recommend me a ...........Pressure Washer

    That’s what appealed to me about the Nixon I have. All the parts are simple, readily available, and easily accessible. If/when something goes, I can replace it myself relatively cheaply & easily, not that I’ve needed to yet.

    Because the electorate were persuaded that the alternative was a worse option. It’s more a measure of how out of touch Corbyn’s Labour were (& still are).

    How are you going to drill winter /spring crops when it drys up

    I would think patience will be the most valuable tool in the arsenal this Spring, even more so than it usually is.

    FYI (although I suspect it may be lost), the most recent text I had giving the average market price, was on Friday, with a price of 209 p/kg live weight. After dressing, waste, etc, the farmer will be getting around 430-440 p/kg deadweight for a lamb carcass. That is a considerable jump on the...
