The full moon on Saturday led to the little bull calf. He is cute now but dairy bulls get mean quickly and Jersey bulls may be the worst. Still, we all adore him at the moment. The eye lashes! The first day I get back from a trip I never feel as if I can get enough done and I moved slowly in the rain today. The sheep are out in the weather with wet wool which means I’ll have to put off shearing for a few more days. I am anxious for them to be shorn. On these hills, with thick wool our sheep can get stuck on their sides and bloat, which is dangerous if we don’t spot them quickly enough. For a few more days I’ll walk through the pasture every chance I get, to see that everyone is fine.
