Then my son was off school with a terrible cold which doesn't sound too bad, but sleepless nights and snotty noses take their toll on him and me!
Yesterday saw my 2 Vorwek cockerels were told off by the sheep. They were arguing and the sheep decided they didn't like it and hilariously started chasing the cockerel who was "winning" around after headbutting him 2 foot into the air. After videoing (It won't let me upload) said chase I set about my jobs but they continued and it got nasty so I broke it up and put some septicleanse on the wound (too strong of a word) and received some good advise off my facebook friends (thank you bloggers who are on there and responded - it's given me some good ideas for what to have in my first aid bag moving forward).
They are stunning, however 1 is now up for sale. They're both coming into their own and do their jobs well, but they will hurt each other if they stay together. I think I will keep the stronger of the 2 as he will do a better job at keeping the fox away hopefully.
Did someone order March? I've gone from feeling it will never arrive to hardly believing it is here! I've been keeping on top of the sowing of seeds as I am trying to do some successionally to ensure we have crops of things throughout the year. The heat bench is a blessing and it is on permanently now. This is what the greenhouse looked like at the weekend.
