Exit Rockstars

3 October 2008

Rock StarsWe say farewell to our two rams Mel Gibbston and Jimmy Baahns, who gave honourable service for two seasons, in spite of the ’07 fiasco (See last year's blog). And no – they are not going where you think, but are off to lighter duties at another South Suffolk flock – total 8 ewes. No chance of a hernia there.

Pictured: Here are the boys on their last day at Redbank.
