We had a very exciting ride yesterday – we were halfway up the hill when a lamb appeared in front of us. Then there was another one and soon the ewe materialised as well.
We obviously wanted to get them off the road and back into the field. Unfortunately, they took one look and ran away from us – and the gate. I left my sister and the ponies guarding the gate and set off in pursuit, wondering how I was going to pass the sheep to turn them back.
Luckily they darted off to the side and it looked like they had found the spot where they escaped. They popped back over the bank and into the field. It may have been the wrong field but at least they were safe and off the road. It was a very satisfying job done.
