You can see the date that i took these photos.. on the 20th of last month.
I was pottering around the cottage on that morning, when i heard the sound of sheep bells in the distance. I thought that rather odd. Our sheep only come over during the spring months, from Mr.H to me. Lots of lush grass then.
Taking a look at where the bell noices were coming from. I quickly grabbed my camera and off I went, hurridly walking to see what all the noise was about, as the dogs were going crazy.
There in the bottom field were about 50 sheep.
I wondered how in heaven, they could have possibly gotten into the property. As I walked towards the fences. There to my dismay the fence wires were cut and the fence had been pushed down.
My neighbours shepherd had pushed the fence down, thinking I wouldn't worry about it. He just let the sheep jump over to eat what's left in the fields. I was a little annoyed at this. I would have prefered it if he had asked me. Up to now, they haven't come back again. I had to speak to the farmer Snr. B and hopefully he tells me he will restore the fences.! I will have to see. I will give him this next week to see how he fairs.
He rents the little piece of land next to mine.
|Here you can see how dry the land is. I dont know what they were eating.|
|Another part of the fence ..here you can see where its been deliberately cut. Its been far too hot to walk down to the bottom fields.|
It will soon be cooler, and I can walk the little lanes again.
Happy Saturday to you all
