The sheep are just at that difficult age now and a couple of weeks ago they learnt they could climb over the wall at the front and into the garden. Rache spent a traumatic Friday trying unsuccessfully to keep them out so over the weekend we constructed sheep defences.

The willow we had cut back over the winter was put to good use to make an attractive and artistic barricade to keep them out.

Job done.....

23rd March 2013 and I think we actually are cut off for the first time today. Deep drifts along our track and along Philpin Lane mean we can't get a car anywhere. It's blowing a gale with wild spindrift so we are going to stay put for the moment. If the wind dies down a bit we might see if we can make it to the Hill Inn later.

More pictures of the snow on the website.
