Mud and Gossip

Just before Christmas I paid a visit the ewes and tips at Bannon's Land. As a new year approaches, winter's bite only becomes more apparent. The fields are saturated with water from rainfall and the grass is barely growing. The sheep enjoy mineral licks and silage bales to keep them going.


Rita is an old friend of mine. She was a pet lamb but she's lost interest in strokes from me.

Rosie's daughter, Clementine.

There are two ring feeders and plenty of silage to go around.

Penny's daughter, Clover.

A proud ewe.


More gossip!

So far the ewes are looking well but the worst of winter is yet to come. While the weather is milder closer to the coast, they'll soon have to come home for even more intense care.
