Famous last words......

Are you going to put up more sheds/barns etc? or do you want more grazing or growing land?

Hope you then served them up fried on a slice of toast as in the old days. Used to watch my next door neighbour castrating piglets and throwing the bits to the waiting cats and dogs!

For goodness sake! How can you live there and not like sheep?!! It's a bit like moving to Heathrow and complaining about aircraft noise!

Seriously, it must be really difficult to keep on good terms with neighbours like that - suppose you've tried the lamb chops for their freezer thing?

I gave Louie to Paula Seaman who lives in Norfolk and I thought was a Poultry Keeper Forum member but I can't find her. I'd love to know how he is doing and if he is a "dad" now.
