Who will we be missing today?

The hens have given us a wary eye over the last few days as first Specked Sussex Number One and then Gorgeous George disappeared without warning.  It is similar for the sheep in the field next door.  Each time some of them require action, for example to shear some ewes, the whole population – ewes and lambs – parade down the lane to the farm, where the action is done, and then back up again.  Today everybody went down the lane but the purpose was more sinister.  Some ewes were kept behind (the old ones) as they are “off to market” tomorrow.  So this evening the field contains some ewes with their lambs and some lambs without their ewes – not a happy situation.
