Sheep!

The World's Best Lawnmower

Overnight we have gone from owning an average-sized easily maintained garden to having over 4 acres of land to tend to. Leigh always dreamed of having enough grass to justify getting a ride-on lawnmower. He soon realised that a ride-on wouldn’t cut the mustard with four paddocks to manage.

His trusty petrol mower is great for trimming the path in the picnic meadow, but for our large paddock we had to call in the experts 🐑

Our biggest meadow needs more than a mower!


Thankfully one of our new neighbours has a flock of sheep that she was happy for us to borrow. 

It gives her pasture time to recover while they stuff their faces with our prime juicy grass! Win-win 😁 

Ziggy wasn’t sure what to make of them at first, but he’s getting used to having new wooly friends (I think he’s a bit scared of a couple of the feistier girls actually). They are such characters and often come and stare up at our window as if they want us to come out and play. 

I do love having them here as they are so entertaining and they are doing a sterling job on that grass ☘️ We need to keep them for a few weeks and I’m sure we’ll have them back again later in the year – they are the best lawnmowers in the world!
