Spot the difference between this...
Did you find the difference?
Here's a clue. Think...
Now go back to the first two photos. In the first, the croft between us and the sea has lambs in it. In the second photo, the croft is empty.
That's because they've been to the market. Now, although I think curry, and lamb chops and roast gigots, the lambs will be glad to know that not everyone does. You see, many of Big Brother's shearlings, wedders and lambs will be for breeding. (Were you impressed with the terminology? Er, well, the truth is ... I haven't a clue. D.R explained it all to me yesterday - there were year old males; there were castrated (oh, I find that word painful. Say it. Just try saying the word... isn't it painful?) one-year olds; there were 6-month old lambs; there were other a year-and-a-half. Male? Female? Who knows.
What I do know is that on the first day at the Auction Mart, there was a show before the sale. I also know that Big Brother's fellas did awfully well. I know too that he was chuffed, and that he even smiled.
I just with I'd been there to see it.
If you click on this link, you will find a gallery of photos and then some video footage from this week's events at the Mart. There are 28 photos first, and then the first of the videos shows one of BB's ram lambs (oh, how I hope I have that right) going under the hammer. BB is in the ring, just below the auctioneer.
Maybe next year I'll venture here myself. I could wear a very strong perfume and take a good face mask for when things get really bad. Ya reckon the other mart-goers would be offended?
