Temperatures are rising and our sheep are still in their winter coat. Time to give the shearer a call. He did a very good job last year. Easier said than done. He appeared continuously bussy for the comming few weeks. No time for a small holder. We were lucky having an experienced sheap shearer family camping at our campsite. We took out their coats by hand shearing! Thank you Aurora and mum!

One of the big egg producing farms in the area has gone bankrupt. The chickens had not been fed for the past few days in the hope that the eggs would pay for the food. Which did not happen. Our neighbour bought a dozen chickens for 50ct. We got six. What did we do to our agriculture system when the value of a living animal does not exceed 50 cents ?!
