    diary of a comedy sheep farm

    We never know..that's why we keep going right? And I meant the little <head/wall> disasters, not the really big tragedies, that's something else altogether.

    Taking off triplets - Why do we bother?

    were these trips that were a similar size to each other when they were born? Often there is one that is tiny or one that is giant and in that case would it make a difference do you think?

    So @spin cycle , does the writing of this ease the pain a little when you do have a disaster? I mean, I would think you would have a little moment thinking-'well, at least they will enjoy this'. It definitely helps me when my sheep are out. Ah, I think, SNOTTAGE.

    Kevs diary

    Does the grid not just fill up with mud in the winter? It would at my place. We always have big gaps under the sides for the water to drain. Might let the hedgehogs out too, but since we don't have them, it's not really an issue.

    Looking after my Jersey

    Sounds so much exactly like my first milking experience. Except the machine. But otherwise so so similar. Don't give up. Next year will be better. And good for you for sticking to it.

    F*ing sheep

    Oh, yes. The posts are treated with that I think. They are green and last a long time usually. Anything untreated will rot in the ground here too. We get a lot of rain usually, it's just all in the winter. About 90 inches last year. And then it doesn't rain at all from June to late September.

    F*ing sheep

    What is cca? So I guess the answer is no. The posts are pressure treated, but the neighbor milled the boards and we put them up green. It'll last 10 or 15 years.

    F*ing sheep

    Now, with the space of a day or two I can see that. In the moment all was lost. I appreciate all the sympathy. Three sides of the fence are good, it was just the one section that I had looked at the day before and had the "I really should tighten that up" thought about:banghead: My fault...

    F*ing sheep

    So you just had to look? Funny, the travel guide to Llanrwst doesn't mention sheep at all. See @bobk comment I guess.

    F*ing sheep

    Somewhere between 70 and 110 (21 to 38 c) mostly. And they're rutabagas. or rather, they were.:( And corn, and peppers. :(:( At least there are grocery stores and friends with gardens. Are sheep worth a lot of money in the saleyards there? If you mean are they worth more than they cost to...

    An attempt to be optimistic. Maybe something will survive.

    F*ing sheep

    About 4 hours ago this was a lovely vegetable garden with loads of promise. Then sheep. Now it is a reminder to make better fences.

    That time of the month, is it? Don't worry, it'll pass in a day or two.

    diary of a comedy sheep farm

    Assuming there's still no sign of Parcelforce or you would've said? Saw the UPS man today, but it's not quite the same. Don't think he hangs out in lofts (or grain bins either), and he definitely doesn't have nice feathers.
