Ewe chew

The lamb paddock needed chewing down and we had a mob of old ewes on hand to do the chewing.

That would have been fine if they’d stopped there.

But no-one had checked the gate between the paddock and the garden and the ewes discovered it was open  . . .

    Having lived in the country and been a farmer fir 30 year I now know why I moved to town. No septic tank, I don’t own any pumps that always broke down and I flick a switch for the gas fire. And there are no ewes to get in the garden (or dag for that matter). – MP

    Was it all down to Mr Paddock or are we talking the Truman doctrine here. you know the bit about where the buck stops but of course it was the does in this instance and they obviously didn’t stop.
    BTW “The Lamb Paddock”, after 12 years absence was it.

    Aspersions have been cast in all directions, GD, and yes it is still the lamb paddock though it’s a long time since it kept a pet lamb out of the garden.
