When I 'wasted' my time at school, listening to Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd albums, I always used to dream about living in Scotland overlooking the sea, painting pictures, playing and recording music, fishing in my own bay, working on the land and not having to worry about money, and it's all here, O.K. except the money, so I don't worry about it...

Last Week of June

Started the week by sorting out which lambs were going to market, putting nets on the bird runs and getting the first release pen ready.
Lambs went to market and averaged £83, a bit down on last week but still pretty good. Started to cut the fields, lined one of the pits and finished the first pen.
Brought the Hoggs and Tups in to drench and split then lined the second pit. Filled and covered the first pit.
Moved all the sheep and cattle to new fields, filled and covered the second pit.
Started to sort out the second release pen until about 2pm then at 6pm crated up the first 1000 birds ready to take to their new home in the Highlands.

The weather has put all the farm work back by 2 to 3 weeks this year.
