After I had dropped the last visitors for this year at the railway station, I arrived home to find Molly in the midst of another breakout.
So I led her across to the newly repaired field beside Poppy and Sheila and left her in there. She will be annoyed for a few days but it is way past time to wean her from her fat ungrateful children. I hope she does not escape, I am not sure I have the strength to fix another fence.
You can see in the picture below the setup. There is still an electric fence between them for a week or so until they are used to each other.
Molly is in the far left of this shot. She will sleep in the calf-hut until they are all put together. In a couple of weeks, I will pull Poppy out and take her to the boar.
That is about all I can manage for today. I feel emotionally shot and lack publishable words at the moment. I am quite ready to go home.
I hope you have a lovely day.
WEATHER: Beautiful. Another great day for hanging out the washing.
