It was scanning day, all the sheep on Jimmy`s farm, the Ewe`s, needed scanned to assess how many potential Lambs would be born. All the colours are date related, prior to scanning, however, depending on how many lambs inside, they get a colour for that too! Which when you look at them, they are truly Multi-coloured sheep!
It was a fowl day today, rain and 60 mph winds, just getting the sheep into the race, was bad enough.
A mixture of Texel`s, Suffolk`s and various Cross breeds.
Waiting for the scanners pad, poor things, due to all the wet weather this year, they look a bit depressed!
The long way home, hotly pursued by little Sky, the sheep dog!
For those not in the know, the red mark on the rumps is an indicator that they have mated! The male sheep,(Tup) wears a harness with a block of colour on his chest! Need I say anymore?
It was a long day.
