Now Pojo feels like home again. The sheep have arrived!
We have two ewes from 2008/9 - Oona and Onerva - who would have been at the Ahomaan farm at the same time as Elisa. It was astonishing to see Elisa immediately take interest in the new arrivals and especially the two older ewes. I'm convinced she recognised them!
Elisa is the rather scruffy ewe on the left (hand sheared) and Oona is on the right (mechanical shear, same week!).
So we have Elisa, Minttu (who is as friendly and affectionate as last year, but a bit bigger), Oona and Onerva and then two from last August (one white, one brown) and 18 from this spring, born between 28.2.2015 and 4.4.2015. So, 24 in all.
We will keep them in a small space for a few days until they are accustomed to their new surroundings and the lush, fresh grass, and then we'll let them into the big field.
