Gamboling Lambs

While driving back from Hawick yesterday one could not help but notice the amazing number of Lambs. Tis the season….lambing season. I remember the phrase Gamboling Sheep (or lambs) so I went to the dictionary: GAMBOLE :  to run and jump in a happy way: Lambs were gambolling (about/around) in the spring sunshine.

So today Tuesday Sasha nd I went for a walk in the fields to see how close we could get to the lambs.

How Close can we get with Sasha the sheep dog?

Sasha says the sheep dogs lie down before rounding them up to calm them?

Hello

We’re back here again to take care of our 3 dogs and boy is it hot and humid. Time for the pool at the main house very soon.

We had a wonderful two weeks with family and they’re now back in Ontario to cooler temperatures but hopefully it’ll will be warming up there soon.

We’re here until April 2nd and then head home with a two week sit in Prescott Az as a stopover which will bring us home at the end of April.

Hope all is well with everyone!

Sasha and I can’t believe that it is now 10 months of sitting, travelling and meeting new pals. Here she sits on her favourite dike scoping the fields looking for the elusive Hares and the Pheasants.

Ah The Borders now where are those Pheasants and Hares  that need a chase.
