I could not part with Little Red. Oh well.
And all the lambs stayed, Oh well again. I will take them to the butcher in January for the freezer at the Inn. Lamb is always popular with the guests.
The crew promised to come back in a few weeks to sort the lambs, which we did not get to do today, due to time constraints. They were really super, I am grateful for their help. There is no way I could have ever managed to get these ewes (and one wether) into the truck without them. Thanks so much to all of them. And to do it out of the goodness of their hearts…well, I am honoured. Next time they are out I promised hot dogs and chile and cake because there was no time today.
I did begin the journey to Tofield, but when I fuelled up, I called the auction house and they said that I would not make it before they closed at 8 tonight and they were not waiting for anyone. So, the sheep are in the truck until tomorrow morning. Bright and early Robbie and I will make the long drive to Tofield and back. Then it will be good bye sheep for sure. What a day!
