Spring has sprung!
Because of problems with foxes and badgers, we keep our new lambs indoors until they are big and strong. We have twelve new healthy lambs at the time of writing. Our other trick is to keep the lights on at night and to leave the radio on. Radio Four is the best. It consists largely of conversation and runs at night into the World Service, so Mr Fox is fooled into thinking there are people in there. The downside is that the poor sheep have to put up with the dreadful Sunday Programme, with its inane religious coverage and deeply superficial coverage of Catholic topics. But, if the choice is Radio Four or death…well, it’s only for a few weeks!
