Ewe and two lambs wandering up and down the road at Clachan Seil. Bit concerned for their safety! I think they came down from the hill behind the house. Does anyone know who they might belong to so I can inform them?

I think they might have wandered down the track from Seil Cottages...

Perhaps the new 30 MPH limit will save the lives of the local livestock.
In the past fortnight I have come across sheep, a horse and a cow, at loose on the public highway.
Sheep particularly in the environs of Ellenabeich.
So far the Llamas have been well behaved.

They're still on the loose. Caught them sunbathing in our back garden today, and hoping they'll save me the job of mowing the lawn :)

Rabbits have kept our lawn circumspect over the winter but nature is overtaking their appetite, so the mower will have to be taken out of mothballs.

Sure I read somewhere that sheep have 'poison gobs' and can kill some garden plants if they nibble them...hope you have not just spent a fortune at the garden centre Struma... :)

I have to admit that's a new one on me. Selective herbicides!I'd be surprised if it were true, but prepared to stand corrected.. Our garden is almost entirely grass though the neighbour has some nice roses overhanging the fence. I'll keep an eye on them :)
