Over Christmas Cookster and I had a Very Exciting Adventure. We were riding up the hill and met a flock of sheep – not actually all that unusual but these sheep were neither in their field nor accompanied by a human. We drove them back up the hill away from the main road and hoped that they would be obliging and slip back into their field. Of course, they didn’t.
Luckily my parents were also out with the dog so my Dad could skirt round them and drive them back towards me and the gate. Cookster had been boggling at the sheep the whole time so it was a lot easier for us to stand still and block the way back to the main road.
This time the sheep were very obliging. I swung the gate open, they trotted in and I shut it behind them. All very simple really in the end!
