Not everyone has a lazy Christmas in front of a crackling fire. Some people (emergency services and hospital workers being a good example) have to trudge on regardless. Another group of people who simply don't stop are farmers.
Christmas morning for us was spent feeding the sheep.
The ground is muddy because it's so saturated. The poor sheep.
Flock by flock, the sheep are going to start coming inside again, ready for lambing in the New Year. Standing there in the mud, drizzle and high winds, the sheep looked miserable.
We really have to get them inside.
When the silage came, they were happy!
One ewe even tried a new hair-do.
And Sheila came along for the ride when we checked the sheep at home.
We had a very muddy Christmas, but the dinner was great!
