Inca is much better.

Just to let you know we are all much happier now the weather is a little warmer.  We’ve found some nice juicy grass in the front garden and the sun has been shining today.
Some of the flock decided that this might be a place where food would be found.  They got chased out.

All that is needed now is some rain and warmer weather to grow some grass. We overheard our owners suggesting dog collars and leads so we can be taken up the road to other grass.  I am sure we could be trusted to behave without leads….however there is the issue of the grumpy neighbour so we can’t try it out.

It’s been so long since I have blogged properly I should tell you there is now only one cat.  Jupiter had gone for a long walk last time I blogged, he didn’t ever come back.  Grebo and Jazz the 3 legged cat got on just fine, and Grebo enjoyed a few more months of being curled up with another cat just as he had at the start of his life.  Now there is just the 3 legged cat who is very spoilt.  She is the only animal in this household who is allowed to live indoors and lives a life of luxury!

That’s all for now.  You never know, there might be more from me this year.

Cou Cou c’est moi, Ida!

I know, long time no see…..I’ve been very busy and life has been so full.

Winter 2016/17

Incas interest in food is not how it is normally and he is spending more time apart from us and looking sad. Our little owner has been worried and got that man who comes to take our wool off to come and see what is wrong.

He thinks that we haven’t got enough to eat and have been eating the hedge which is too rich. So he brought over a trailer of hay…guess what, we’re not interested in that thank you!
Yesterday was a lovely day and the little owner went out and came back with some bread for us (they don’t eat bread much). We managed a whole pain between us and I heard her saying she was pleased to see Inca looking happier and pushing in (as he does normally) for food.

Today he is not happy again and the little owner is thinking that perhaps the very cold temperatures at night (-6C)  might not be helping so she has made ( and I mean made) the big owner rig up an infra red heating lamp in the pen he made several years ago which we refuse to use as a pen and there is fresh straw in there, the hay and some other things, oh and water (not sure what you’re meant to do with that!)

I heard the little owner say that she will keep us in over night and see if that improves things for Inca….she also said it will be interesting trying to get us in there….she’s right.
Will let you know how it goes tomorrow.

Hope you’ve all be okay and are looking forward to warmer weather and grass that grows.

Love,
Ida
