|Lambs on Theo|
The next day Christopher and his father shifted 86 cast ewes onto Halfway island to fatten for the abattoir over the next month or two. They used the black aluminium dingy for this. It takes between 30 to 40 ewes at a time. They towed this dingy with the orange dingy. It takes about 10 minutes to go across from the jetty. This is the first time this boat has been used for this. It looked quite funny because someone had replaced the original rivets with ones with eyes instead of blind ones so it looked a bit like a colander with all these little water spurts.
Shaun and Tanya came back from their trip to Beaver Island. Tanya didnt like sailing.
On the 20th Christopher and Shaun went down to George island and put the Pol Dorset rams out on Barren and the Dohnne rams out on George Island.
Yesterday Christopher and Shaun gathered Twin Ponds. We put the Samm rams out with them and turned them into the ram paddock for a couple of days. Twin ponds is massive and it takes the rams a long time to get around all the ewes. Putting them in a paddock for a couple of days helps to get them covered a bit quicker.
Today Christopher and Shaun have been working on Shauns house. The new kitchen is now all nogged and this afternoon they are going to plasterboard the ceiling.
Tanya is in Stanley doing her weeks hairdressing and I am just doing general household things. I have my nephew Macaulay out for a week.
Tiphanie has been doing some pub/restaurant work for the last month in between her uni course in UK. Last week a customer came into the pub where she was working. She served the customer and he thought she had a unusual accent and asked one of the other staff who the new employee was and was told it was Tiphanie from the Falkland Islands. It turned out the person was the brother in law of my brothers ex wife. Small world.
