After a snack lunch we got our wellies on and headed out to check up on Arnold and his new companions.
Arnold was very welcoming and demanded a good hug, a good scratching session, and then searched our pockets for the apple which he knew would be around somewhere. I had to laugh because the sheep had obviously been watching us for as Arnold crunched and munched they began tip-toeing closer to see whether we had something for them!
They gave us some very hard stares when we had nothing to offer them - sorry sheep!
Arnold seemed very keen on the hugging side of things today.
The good news is that the sheep were all keeping pretty close to Arnold, everyone had been amicably grazing in the same part of the field - so I think the plan is working. Arnold has chums!
We nipped over the road and across stile and checked out the fishing pond which is directly across the road from our house.
This is the view in the other direction
in the distance there you can see the old Methodist Chapel which has been converted into a lovely home.
If you would like to see a little more of our area my lovely friend Dom has done an article for Lincolnshire Magazine, all about our local trout farm and smokery located just across the road from us.
