Sheep in the meadow

Our new sheepOur  blog’s been a bit quiet recently thanks to the children getting their hands on yet another camera with very sorry results. We’re now back on track with a super digital slr and can report on the latest goings on at Rustic Puglia.  We’ve been wanting to take another step towards self-sufficiency for a while – we enjoy our veg and freshly laid eggs but thought it was time to add some more livestock. We bought the property from a local farmer, who today sold us two of his four-month old lambs for us to breed from. Their rather undignified arrival was in the boot of his 4×4 – there I was thinking they’d come in a horse box! Our job now is to get them used to contact so they can be petted by our smaller guests and also led around the land to help Andy cut the grass. For more photos see our facebook page here
