Curly,Wills and Curly’s Brother

at all lost or wandering ! they were well behaved in their assigned field (for once)and very very pleased to see me . There are some new kids getting friendly (and friendly, Paul, means they dont get eaten right ?!) let me introduce you to the fearless and patchworked Mask . A gauky lamb from this year  with very long legs and the kind of sheep that would be a super model if she could. Then there is the cutest chunky Chocolat (said in french accent) and I am talking 75% colour of chocolate … she has the sharpest little hooves imaginable and gives you a very good hoof massage on the back ! the old faithfuls ,Birsay (tail wags like dog when stroked)and Barra (paws at you with her hoof for attention) are still wonderful and prima donnas to a tee  .. in fact the whole troupe will be featured in the very rare and hitherto unseen and untried art cinema for sheep entitled  “When Sheep Dare” .. which is to be filmed by Victoria on her forthcoming visit.watch this space ! It is incredible the social circles in which one moves when in deepest darkest sussex.

and not for giving a hoofy back massage ! Spot , our shetland lamb (boy) is getting very cheeky and finds it amusing to jump up on your back with his pointy little hooves. Result : a back massage with mini jimmy choos.. Now I don’t know about you,and I know people pay a lot for such administrations , but to my mind it is a pleasure too far !

Talking of pleasure…the  boys (Magnus the ram and his cohorts) escape ! into the garden this time for a rampage through what must seem like a giant salad bar of tasty oriental titbits. This happens in a downpour , the like of which has not been seen since Noah packed everyone up in an ark.After stomping around crossly and soggily we give up as dusk falls and we can’t even see the black Curly,Curly’s Brother and Wills , like black ninjas ,cavorting through the echinaceas.

This morning the evidence is all too obvious as we perceive that many of the big luscious grasses have sustained significant collateral damage. Paul is not too pleased. I am just relieved we have got them coralled again before our Dutch garden visitors arrive .Having Curly serve you with a slice of Victoria sponge would not be de rigeur ! tea cup mayhem !

talking of tea cups … watch this space for Robin’s new Driftline mad hatters tea cup sculpture which should be arriving soon ! anyone for tea vicar ?!
