More and more drafting
Spent the best part of today drafting. Also gathered top Twin ponds to get the cast ewes in ready to go on the boat tomorrow. Rained again and all the lambs got wet. Ended up with 527 lambs and 153 cast ready for the abattoir. Some of the cast ewes will not go because the boat will not be able to fit them all on but got extra ready to make sure we have enough to fill all four sheep crates. Took the tags out of the lambs and branded them with our farm brand SI. Still have the cast ewes left to brand but run out of time and the will. Got in the house at 6:30pm. Concordia Bay is here already. We will start loading at 7:00 am in the morning. Busy days.
