Selling

Hi

Hello again. Sorry I haven’t written a blog in a while because there hasn’t been much going on. I have had a busy few weeks at school because on the night before Remembrance Day my school got burgled. The burglars came to our school at about midnight and broke through a window next to the bike shed into the front office. When they finally got in the alarm went off. They fled but picked up the Remembrance Day poppy money but managed to find time to write on the poppy box ‘WE DON’T CARE!’ So our school have set up a campaign called ‘WE DO CARE’ because at our school we take these things very seriously. The press came in and because I am part of the campaign they decided to take a photo of me for the paper. I thought it would be on the inside of the paper but it was on the Front Cover. That night the burglars went to four different places and stole the poppy money. I think it is disgraceful. On a positive note the school have really pulled together and we have already raised enough money to replace the stolen collection.

On the sheep side of life it has been quite busy. My granddad came down to see us this week. I asked him to bring down a ‘High energy’ lick to give to the ewes because they need to get a bit healthier. I have one ewe which isn’t very well. We think it might have a liver problem. I asked my granddad if he could have a look at the ewe and he said that it had a liver problem. I have taken it upon my self to sell it. It is going on Tuesday to a livestock mart. I know that I will only get about £50 because it is so lean. I will probably not buy another ewe this year but might buy a ewe with lambs next year once I have lambed the others.

If you have any questions about the WE DO CARE campaign or if you have any questions about the farm just leave a comment.

Thank you,
Jack

  1. My son wants some ewes and I would like your advice on what breed to pick, how much they will cost and should I buy them in lamb or with lambs?

    Thank you jack for all the great advice you give
