Thelma and Connie
Here they are Thelma and Connie
This is Thelma the darker one
And this is Connie
They are both sister's and are still a bit stand offish, there first time away from the herd so I expect it will take some time for them to settle in, we are hoping they have both managed to get caught by the Billy we will know in a few weeks. They are Boer Guernsey cross.
They have been named after Lake Thilmere and Lake Conniston in the Lake District as our house has been named after a place there. All future addition's will be named in the same way.
While I was sewing toilet rolls in the cabin (craft blog for details) Martin was bottling his Dandelion wine, its lovely and clear and should be ready for drinking Christmas
He also got some pea pod wine on the go, I have been keeping the pods in the freezer for him finally today he had to time to make a start on it.
This afternoon we dispatched plucked and dressed the last four table ducks for this year, we having the smallest for dinner tomorrow, it weighs 4lb the others came in at 4.8lb's, 5.8lbs and a lovely 6.4lbs, they are now in the freezer for another day, we should have got them done a few weeks ago but just didn't have the time.
That about sums up today :-)
