Its been a busy few days at Brackenbrae. We have been sorting out the sheep and sponging them before the tups go in so that we get the lambing concentrated into a short period. The tups go in on the 21st of November this year, a lot later than previously as we want to delay the lambing until we have grass in the spring so that the ewes and lambs can go out to the grass as they lamb.
The horses had their dental checks this week, most were ok and coped with the new high tech dental equipment. Lizzie unfortunately has a bad tooth that needs removing so is booked into the Royal Dick to have it removed on Thursday. Poor Lizzie, her first road trip in years and its to the vet school.
The weather was good at the weekend so Alison and I took Jack and Lockie for a ride while Jim walked Candy. Later we tried a saddle on the new girl Pearl and she treated it as normal so we will do a bit more with her and get her restarted under saddle.
