Our two new boys are settling in to life at the funny farm. The Ryeland Ram lamb, now nicknamed Kipper, this was when we thought his name had to begin with the latter K (Ryeland Rams have to be named with a letter assigned to the year) but then we discovered that 2011 is letter P, so something poncey like Pharaoh's Prince, or Posh Poseur is in the offing, poor lad. He is a big baby and spent most of the day trying to hide under or behind Joan, one of our coloured Ryeland ewes.
Meanwhile Thor the Boar is enjoying himself at the other end of the the smallholding. He did get visitors today, three little pigs turned up, the Mangalitza piglets were on an expedition.
