We've got the land rented out this year so we're enjoying watching the farmer's sheep. Today I discovered catching a lamb that somehow got out of the front field isn't so easy. Ended up in a gentle rugby tackle! So carried the lamb back to the field and the flock stood there bahing at me. They sounded very cross!

Oh Val's the sheep whisperer - they all trot over to her when she's around. One rattle of the peg bag and they go mad thinking she's got sheep nuts.
Me on the other hand, dark suspicions and let's take the lambs to another field..
