Basil gets busy! (after 9pm viewing only...!)

It felt a little bit like dropping Basil outside the school gates for the first time, would he make any friends?  Would he know what to do?  We needn't have worried.  After a quick graze, he looked up and saw about 250 ewes all racing towards him and knew exactly what to do!  It was so funny to watch.  The ewes literally surround the rams and almost line up one after the other.  The raddles (see earlier blog) mark the ewes and there are already a few green backsides.

We will keep you posted but its looking promising for some very sweet lambs to be born come the spring!
