Lazy day

Expecting to go to Barren today and gather all the ewes and lambs  again ready for the lambs to go to the abattoir. Instead I spent the day cleaning up, washing etc after the rush of the last few days.  Chris killed dog tucker and pressed 3 bales with the hand press.  The weather has been quite warm and pressing the bales to 160 - 190 kilos has worked up quite a sweat.
Concordia Bay is delayed arriving until tomorrow afternoon.  We will now get the lambs in tomorrow and  brand them with our farm mark of GI ready to be  loaded onto the boat at 6am the following morning.
Both had a lazy afternoon watching a bit of telly.

Our boat Theo moored at George Island
 Still need to find good homes for two dog pups they are now six weeks old and eating us out of house and home.
