On the machinery front, I am very seriously considering buying a PTO driven paddock sweeper to go behind the tractor ... there is no way I can keep up with the amount of poo they're all producing with our little sweeper and once full I find it impossible to empty it..
This afternoon I put all the non-pregs in with the Junior females. Very entertaining as they all got close to each other- they have been in adjoining fields for ages, but they found all this very exciting.
Now a warning - today has been warm and humid, a very typical fly strike day. Little Marah had a few flies buzzing round her and no-one else did. On close inspection she had a sore place between her toes on one foot and it was attracting the flies, so out with the antiseptic spray and the fly-strike stuff just in case.
Enjoy the pics...
