Vera is here…somewhere! Can you find her?

The sheep have just been released to pasture and the grass is beautiful and they seem very content. Here is Nellie to say hello.

This is such a nice time of year when the sheep can really dig into the fresh grass.

And the dogs settle in around them.

Ready for the evening – when they do quite a bit of barking!
