I have spent the day painting in the bedroom again. At last it is coming to an end. Also minced 6 lb of beef and prepared it for making sausage rolls for lamb marking. It is great having my mother out, she is a great help.
Christopher finished repairing the dinghy. Also drilled two post holes to fix the pens ready for drafting next week. The post holes have to be drilled because the posts are going into solid rock. A lot of the problems with the fences are because the posts are not in deep enough.
In the afternoon he gathered and brought in the sheep from the top of Twin Ponds. It has a mixture of sheep, cull ewes for dogs meat, and hogs (last years lambs) that didn't make the grade for the abattoir last season. The hogs will now stay in for shearing next week and some of the cull ewes will be slaughtered for dogs meat.
