You can take the meat-eater out of the farmer, but you can't take the farmer out of the vegetarian

So Far
Fourteen sheep lambed - seven to go. Sixteen live lambs and two dead.

Nine cows calved - two to go. Eight healthy calves and one dozy one on a bottle.

One horse foaled - one to go.

And Chloe's afterbirth


  1. Oh my! The fertility gods certainly paid a few visits to your place... glad it has been mostly healthy babies. Is that one Highland baby a true blonde??? They sure are fuzzy little things!

    You gotta love all the babies! Lots of work but so cute!

  2. WOW! What a demographic explosion! It looks like a daycare center. You will need some help from the supernanny, hahaha.

  3. If you wish to retain your fertility I would desist from putting a picture containing your dear wife next to a caption containing the words "one dozy one with a bottle".
    I hope that this helps.

  4. LOL vicus! ahem. Your progeny are breathtaking dear Tommy

  5. Blimey - it's real life!

  6. Ah, the wonder of nature.
