Long time no post, as usual.
It's been pretty hectic but I finally got sheep! They are 4 beautiful specimens of friesian sheep, 2 hoggets and two ewes at second lactation. We were lucky enough to find them this late in the season.

Aren't they beautiful P?
I have a few problems, including the fact that the 2 ewes are likely still milking and I haven't managed to milk them yet because the set up is not optimal, they are still pretty shy and don't like their temporary dorm.
They seem in good health though and they are getting friendlier and less scared by the day.
Tonight they went running after me when I got in with the red bucket (the red bucked brings good stuff), and they even entered the tiny stable. There is hope I'll manage to check the udders tomorrow.

The decking is finished too, and is a big plus for my living space:

While the stable is sort of stuck in a half finished stage. Big mess with the order for the sheeting by the coop.

More soon

  1. Wow Vincenzo! Great job! You must be so proud. Your sheep look fantastic. Will your stable be ready soon?

    What will you do with the deck? Will it be a closed extension to your mobile home?

    Are you going back to Italy for Christmas or staying in Ireland?

    Merry Christmas in advance from the Duclert family!
