rebellion....

it would seem that last years lambs have decided that they are now totally grown up ...




they are now of course a gang of five...

five lambs that have today discovered a way out of their field...

they have had a taste of the grass on the other side of the fence and decided that it tastes good....





i have lost count of how many times we have rounded them up - repaired yet another hole/escape route in the fence....




they have never made an attempt to get out before today - not even when we removed their mama's in to another field where they could rest whilst growing this years babies...

perhaps Spring is in the air....

perhaps they watched the new fencing going up yesterday and have decided that they would prefer to live there....

or perhaps they are just being rebellious teenagers...




whatever it is stephen and i are totally knackered after the numerous laps of the field we have done....

they have however taken our minds off of other things.. if only for a short time...

naughty, naughty gang of five - how we love you all

B a a a a a a a a a d sheep! You said just what I was thinking - they're a gang. What fun pictures of them.

We are moving ahead with thoughts of owning our own sheep! We still need fencing and a post hole digger - oi! but, the barn is ready - yipee! Tom went off to a huge farm up north that was having an open house and got a ton of questions that he's had answered. I'm bracing myself for him coming home and surprising me any day now. I'm afraid that you are only feeding this mad cap idea that we have!

I forgive you! = )

Love, Katy Noelle

one suggestion - electric stock fencing.

i think your teenagers knew you where feeling low and wanted to give you a fun filled day and take you away from your worries.
Because in their minds watching Mr & Mrs seahouse running around the field after them and fixing escape rotues is a fabulous day lol
I hope tomorrow is a less knackering sweetie.
Lots of love,
