This afternoon I spent the afternoon paying bills and doing paperwork ready for the plane tomorrow. We have asked for a freight run tomorrow as I haven't had any mail since before the end of January and there will be bills that need paying before the end of the month. We are also taking the opportunity to send two of the pups away. One is going to Stanley as a pet and the other is going into the vet for an operation because it has a belly button hernia. I prefer not to call in a plane if no one is flying in or out because it seems an extreme expense to drop off mail and stores but sometimes you have to.
Christopher spent the afternoon getting the boat ready to take the small lambs over to the reservation on Tea Point. He left 4 o'clock ish and is not back yet at 7 o'clock but he has to unload them from Theo in small lots and tow them to the shore in our old dingy using our new one as there there is no jetty for Theo to get alongside.
Got the result of our 310 lambs from Barren today. Really pleased, 126 maxed out price wise. Pleased with all the results some were obviously ready to go earlier, others could have done with a bit longer. I guess we will always have this problem because we have to be able to fill crates. A crate holds between 150 to 170. This time we sent 310 in two crates, we can't send them away in small lots because we only have limited visits from Concordia Bay.
