Sheep today, but as a link with ponies and horses yesterday, here is a photo of both grazing in a field together!


In 2013, I visited my friend Rainee who was living in the Falkland Islands, on West Island. One of her three neighbours in Hill Cove invited us to go out on a “gather” to move 3,000 sheep, using just three dogs, to fresh grazing on West Lagoons Farm. It required miles of off-road driving while the dogs did virtually all the work!
