Young Things

Do you remember Ben’s Birthday Bash? Well, I took a video of Ben and Jack playing in typical Sprollie fashion.

Meanwhile, the snow’s gone! Nooooooooo! Pip didn’t seem to mind, though…

It’s warmer now. I like that.

I don’t get a cold bum waiting for you to take a picture of me.

Did you notice that Pip’s on a bale? Sure makes her look bigger.

She had a mini-photoshoot up there on Saturday.

It’s very windy up here.

Poor Pip, it’s good that she has some self-control.

Yeah. She has control alright.

Pip also likes attacking snakes.

What? Snakes are evil!

Oh – and I forgot to mention, we had a lamb on Sunday! It’s a ewe (as far as I can remember – I haven’t actually seen it yet), and I’ll be showing her to you soon!

Last year’s first lambs were born on November 28th, and were twins (which I named Titch and Tilly).

Here’s the happy family (mum’s called Charlotte, after a friend of mine).

They were both strong lambs, but we put them into the the livestock trailer and brought them home.

Charlotte was not impressed.

The family spent some time in a pen before heading outside to the field.

Their new field had some cows next door.

They were scary.

Titch was sold, but Tilly still hangs around.

So, happy belated birthday, Titch and Tilly!

And this is my 200th post!


  1. Oh my, that third photo of Pip sure shows how she has grown!

    Ben and Jack were having so much fun in the snow, the video is so lovely and it made me smile a lot.

  6. Congratulations on your 200th post! Little Pip is HUGE. I just can't believe how fast she is growing. Unfortunately, I couldn't open the videos. I will try again later - maybe it is my computer?

    Your pal, BIG Pip
