Andrew, our friend the shepherd came to shear our sheep. It is a very skilled job and he is very good at it. First he did the lambs from last year
We found out that one of the yearlings had had fly strike, but it had been stopped when I put the medicine on. It doesn’t look very nice but she is healing fine. I am going to treat them all in early April next year to prevent this. We haven’t had this much trouble before with it, but maybe the weather was different – the mild winter?
Then he came back and did the ewes
His dog Kite watched attentively
and my tough working sheepdog Kainaat? Well he was being a campsite dog …. which is an equally important job you know …. it isn’t all sheep work here.
