Goodbye to Alfie and Eddie
It has been a sad week for me - my two grass-eating machines have gone.
I got up at 6.30 a.m. every morning for the last 10 years or so - come rain or shine to
feed and water them. Saving titbits, cabbage leaves etc. for them to enjoy.
I reared them by hand - they were pets who served no useful purpose except to keep
the grass down in the field.
I shall miss their little faces every morning waiting at the gate expectantly - I won't go into
any detail as to why they are no longer with me or I will get a bit emotional.
Stupid I know - they were only sheep after all.
Goodbye old pals.
