Well Cheryl and Mel commented the other day that there was never a dull moment at my place...well they sure are right.
My favourite sheep mumma was due to have her baby in about a week.
So I go out yesterday to pick up some manure for the garden and look what I found..
Good on you mumma..
Now remember Daisy got into the septic the other day..well I gave her a stern talking..
Oh dear just like my children when they were teenagers...she didn't listen. Only trouble was hubby was away..lucky I had a son to help me take the fence down again.
So we got them all sorted and everyone into their paddock for the night.
Mumma and her baby were put into the little secure paddock for the night to keep them safe from Mr Foxy. Two AM I woke to mumma really, really upset. I was out of bed, grabbed the flashlight, out the laundry door, into gumboots, down two steps and into the paddock in record time...look and look no baby!! Mummas crying, I'm nearly crying and then I hear this tiny little noise. Baby has somehow got down this small opening and got herself stuck behind the little shed. Luckily by now hubby has turned up in his gumboots and undies (stop laughing Cheryl) and after a little effort we managed to reunite mumma and baby.
Nothing like a 2AM heart starter to keep you on your toes.
