Drip, drip, drip is all we can hear around here today. A thaw seems to be happening, thank goodness. It’s been a long and hard couple of weeks made slightly easier by the efforts this picture depicts, thank you Tony. Shepherd Sandy Gordon has also been an absolute star for all his efforts in rescuing the sheep and keeping the roads around the Estate and Farm open as much as possible. Unfortunately we have lost quite a number of expectant ewes but the first early lambs (thanks to Eastside Holiday Cottages escapee tups!) are already here. Sheep farming never stops.
