On Monday, I finally got Sheila, Pip and Ben to tolerate each other.
We went to the field with them, so they had plenty of space to run. Not that they did much running.
Pip has gotten over her Ben fear. Sort of.
On the way back from the field, it was starting to get really dark.
But I still wasn’t satisfied with the photos I’d taken. So then I remembered something from back in November, when it was also getting dark. I used one of dad’s trailers as a platform for the dogs.
Ben was too scared to move at the time.
I never got a chance to post these photos, but I loved them.
But anyway, I found the trailer on the way back from the field, so I decided to have another trailer photoshoot, well aware that I was running out of daylight.
Once again, Ben was too scared to move.
But Pip and Sheila were unfazed.
I used my funny noises trick, and this is the result:
I really love this photo – it sums up their personalities very well.
Meanwhile, the lambing’s slowed down quite a lot. Some days there have been no lambs at all! Which is surprising, because the ewes look very close to lambing, don’t you think?
This ewe must think she’s a dog.
On Friday night, pet ewe Tilly (the old one) had a lamb. Here’s Tilly.
And here’s her latest lamb, a little ewe.
Isn’t she cute? I haven’t given her a name yet because I just can’t think of one – any suggestions?
