We both left on the gather at the same time today. We were away from the house by 7am, me in the Strada with the dogs and Christopher on his motorbike. The first gather started from the house and we gathered down. The sheep in this camp have been shorn but we wanted to draft off any odds and roughies that had been missed in the first gather. Fantastic gather, all the sheep were in the pen at 8am, this is a very large camp but the sheep all live at the far end on the greens. It is badly in need of fencing so that we can make them use some of the less appealing pieces. Apparently we could have been there earlier if I had been in the right place on the gather. I was thinking it was so rough in the vehicle that I would just head for the places where I would get the best run. It worked for me.

At 3 o'clock Christopher was back out again on his third gather of the day. Leaving me at home to carry on cooking, making beds etc. Its now 5 o'clock, Christopher is still gathering and I am still cooking.
