Update of my Spring in Scotland

I have seen the newborn lambs, have bottle fed the new arrivals at Pilmuir. I cannot describe the peaceful happiness that new lambs bring to one. Holding these delicate creatures in my arms, I think back to my youth when all I ever wanted was to be a veterinary surgeon. However fate an School marks were agin me.

So my love for all animals continues. I have read all of James Herriots books, walked every episode of all creatures great and small. So I was very fortunate indeed to obtain the long sit in Banchory. Where I look after the Llamas, sheep, ducks, chickens, pullets and of course the pair of dogs and cats. To quote an old phrase it is like I have died and gone to heaven. Caring for these creatures makes me feel a wee bit like Dr Doolittle. Only without the singing. ( Do not want to scare my charges )

Here is my first attempt at a selfie while bottle feeding one of the twins that were 2 days old.

Spring also affects the Swine Clan: Not under my care but I stop by and say hello.

Mmmmmmm Bacon, Pulled Pork, Crackling so many meaty dishes. I may be a hypocrite in some way as my love and caring for animals does not entice me to become a Vegetarian nor Vegan.

On Sunny Scots mornings I sit and enjoy my morning coffee outside while Sasha and Susy explore checking for foreigners ie:rodents, rabbits and squirrels.

Sasha leads as Suzy brings up the rear.
