Lois on Canvas

1 comment
This was my second year entering the Lamlac photography competition. It's just the sort of competition that was made for me! This year they only allowed one entry per person, so I had to choose carefully. In the end I went for this photo of Lois, which came highly commended! The announcement was made on their Facebook page, and here on their blog.

I was surprised when I received a direct message from Lamlac, saying they would like to send me a canvas of my photo. My canvas arrived a couple of weeks later and I took it outside to get a few photos.

I even took a photo of the canvas where Lois had been standing for the original photo.

Thank you, Lamlac!

Another piece of news is that this blog is on Feedspot's Top 20 Farming Blogs list... at number 16!

I'm very flattered to be included on this list! I even get a little medal to display.

Happy Seventh Birthday, Teddy!

Teddy had a great birthday today, riding around with me in the tractor and receiving even more cuddles than usual. We had a little photoshoot for his big day.

This is not the camera angle, he really does sit like this!

Such a handsome boy.

And he knows it.

Birthday smile!

Catching Up With the Triplets

On Monday evening I visited Bob's extended family. It was great to see that the triplets were doing so well. Ever and her shadow, Sunny.

I love his nose speckles.

Mum Ever is so pretty.

Sunny and a friend.

Sunny is a handsome little chap.

And very friendly.

His sister Dahlia.

And his other sister Belle, who's really cheeky!

Belle wouldn't like you to know, but there are other sheep in the flock besides herself.

Natalie is a sheep whisperer!

The sheep were gathered in for spraying against flies, and to run through a foot bath of blue stone. The lambs had never been through a foot bath before, so they were hesitant.

They needed a helping hand!

Most of the adults (at least the well-behaved ones) just walked through without a fuss.

Awaiting their turn.

There they go.

Once the job was done, the dogs that were locked up to avoid scaring the sheep could be returned to their kennels.

Sue and Natalie compete for best hair.

I think it's a draw!
