Wow, what weather again!  Gale force winds and continual rain for weeks on end have left the paddocks looking more like paddy fields.  The water table is so high that even their “barn” is flooded out and the gateway to the paddock is almost impossible for them to get through without needing snorkels and flippers!  The week before Christmas we decided it was time for a shuffle round, so put Mackintosh back with his male chums and the ewes back with the other girls.  They soon settled back in after Mackintosh re-established the pecking order with a few head butting sessions which rendered Matthew bowled completely off his feet!  Now Mac tends to lord it over his gang by standing on the roller over them – far less painful I imagine.
