We have a light covering of snow this morning giving me the perfect opportunity to pop down and give some extra fodder to Heidi and Hetty, my Herdwick ewes.
I give them hay and sugar beet cubes in the cow'us (in Swaledale this is the name for a field barn) as it can get wasted if fed outdoors.
As much as Heidi and Hetty want the feed they are still cautious. They know me, they recognise my voice but at the end of the day they are wild, not pets, and that is how it should be.
It didn't take long however for them to overcome their nerves and to start tucking in. Happy Herdys!
