Everything you need to know about me…..
I work. And I’ve had a bath. So……if you’re the baboon who drives backwards and forwards across the A419 at Cricklade near USAF Fairford - probably in a Mondeo – screaming instructions on how to do both…stop embarrassing yourself. Really, there’s no need!

So…moving on. Meet the family.
I keep them out in the garden as much as possible. The fresh air does them good. When they get hungry I throw them a packet of sausages, a slab or two of lager and a box of matches for the barbeque.
The rest of the gang……

And speaking of dying……..they are NOT going to end up being anybody’s lunch!
Black Wensleydale ram
This is dad to the coloured cross breeds. He usually raises the question, ‘wow, what is it?’. The answer is, ‘he is a sheep – and probably a great burglar deterrent should anybody who doesn’t know him bump into him in the dark.’
OK, introductions over….time to get on with business!
