We welcomed to the world Jester, a very sturdy lad who now brings our tally of potential lamb chops up to four. He joined Berry, Bumble and Bee in the post natal ward. Maude, Easter and Bonny are still threatening to lamb but failing to deliver in every sense of the word. Its was a bit mind blowing to see such a big lamb fall out of such a small sheep, Ebony, and Ebony as her name suggests is a very different colour to the snow white adorning Jester. He does have black ears though. The BBMC training is going well, another quick blat up the North Face Gully was completed, this time without putting my foot in a rabbit hole and falling face first into a gorse bush.
The sheep display team training is going well. We are entering the Ryelands into the World of Sheep competition at Kington show this year. The theme of our entry is the Pyramids and we have five minutes to construct a three bale high "Pyramid" using only trained sheep. Here we see the first stage of construction, Bonny is waiting for the second layer to be moved into position. Its hard work but we are pretty confident of a medal this year.
