There’s still plenty of action going on inside the sheep barn at the moment. We now have about 220 lambs (and counting) and of course their 270 mothers.
Which keeps my husband and the dogs busy for most of the day and evening.
But should they feel like some light entertainment, they need only step outside to watch the latest developments in downhill skiing. Yet another 7 inches of snow has turned the field into the perfect piste and the kids ski until they’ve had enough of walking back up (we haven’t got round to putting in a chair-lift yet).
I suppose if one day we decide that there is no future in sheep farming, we can always open a ski resort. Or maybe some sort of tourist activity along the lines of ‘skiing à la ferme’.
