A Cottage in Clarkville


A Sheep Mix Up

Our five sheep, including the 2 pregnant girls, had a trip over to the neighbours last week for an appointment with the shearer prior to lambing time. While they were there they were drenched and lice sprayed as well. Noah and I went back to collect them but something didn’t seem quite right, sure enough when Paula got home she confirmed that we brought back a stranger and left one of ours behind! Yesterday we took all the sheep back and managed to collect the missing one, and then led the five of them home.
When we got them here we gave them all a vaccination and a foot trim, so they are all set for lambing, which should be in September.

i believe it’s call “rustling” when you take someone else’s livestock. dodgy.

Just got the wool cheque, a great result, $25 for the shearer, $49.90 received for the wool!
