Sitting Pretty !!







I thought that I would post this picture of one of my boys, affectionately known as 'Socks'.

He was enjoying the lovely sunny weather last week, however it appears to be much cooler this week.

We have done our second Blue Tongue Vaccinations today, all went well, there appears to be no problems to report as of bed-time tonight !

The babies are getting used to their new routine, although they appear to spend much of their day looking for their mums across the field........ the humming has definitely reduced and they seem to be more settled, the halter training is going well, it always amazes me how quickly these animals learn.
We still have a little difficulty catching on a night time, but I'm sure that they will get the hang of things.......its nice to get some 'hands-on' time with the babies, without the threat of drowning in Spit !..... incidentally Minstrel is much more pleasant now she is not protecting her baby .....thank goodness for that ! Her ear is healing well, we have been up close and personal !! without any spitting...... Yippee !!!!!

Up close and personal without spit!

Nice one Jayne. Our resident 'fountain' seems to have calmed down too.

Well guy's you are lucky because Kate is as spitty as ever. She is 344 days gone now though so I will allow her to be grumpy.
