Animal of the month for our regular catch up at the City Farm was the sheep 🐑.

The sheep are currently hanging out in the field where we helped out planting a new orchard last year.

Tim set about clearing an area of paving, that to us looked like a sheep dance floor. We reckon sheep probably like to boogie to '80s music - Love Wool Tear Us Apart, Lamb Rap! (Enjoy What Ewe Do), And The Bleat Goes On, that sort of thing...

Dan and Ellie, possibly not fancying the steep, muddy, slipperiness of this field, volunteered for manure duties.

The rest of us set about clearing the area of dead thistle stalks, which the sheep don’t really like, and helping prepare a tasty meal of nettles.

Eventually the dance floor came to life, with the sheep moving in for feeding time. Even the young lambs were tucking in to the solid food now. Yum!
