Another week with sheep and some cheeky MONKeys!

... the ewes in preparation for shearing next week. This is when all the dirty wool is sheared from the backside of the sheep so that when the sheep are fully sheared, the wool shouldn't contain too much poo! It was great to watch the dagging going on and seeing a wool shed in action. Behind the shearing platform is a series of pens where sheep are moved into so it's easy for the shearer to grab the next ewe. The hard part was keeping ...

... help! They have very poor eyesight and seem to bump into things! We also saw a very friendly spur winged plover which makes an ear piercing cackle!

As I write this we are sitting in our van in Palmerston North in the rain with a vodie! Have a good weekend people ...

... managed to make this happen. Pulling into her driveway with a huge smile on my face, and a nervous Ross beside me (he has never even spoken to Amy yet was going to stay with her for the next few days!) it was finally time to meet her! From the moment they saw us through the kitchen window they started to congregate at the door. We were made to feel like part ...
