A New Job ?

Well not so much as a new job, its more of me having found something useful to do with my spare time. Instead of just walking the dog in the mornings, I'm going to be walking the fields for a local farmer, checking on his sheep to make sure that there aren't any that are cast and that they're generally OK. The farmers a young chap who has stock all over the place and he also runs a busy fencing contracting business too. Like most farmers he  doesn't have enough hours in the day and so, the arrangement is going to suit us well. It'll  help me to stay fit and save him the valuable hours that he'd have to otherwise spend walking the fields. Not a bad work place to have.

Oh very good
Something to suit everybody there by the sounds of it, and a great excuse for a walk.

And Grace will be able to have a rest, because I wont be taking her around with me. There are also plenty of rabbits in the farmers fields, so I might help myself to one or two of those this coming winter.

Sounds great idea as Toddy said, a win win one. I hate walking for no reason but that gives you a good reason

But does bodger know that sheep have more ways of committing suicide than cucumbers or tomatoes in a bad blight year?

I love sheep but they can be very stupid.
