Tea Time in Patou land!

Well us poor old duffers down here in Wiltshire have had a go at increasing the technology levels. When the herd is called to the sound of a whistle and the rattle of a bucket they come running. For some reason I wanted the world to see it.

Today I did the whistle/bucket thing whilst Sue waited with the little Canon on video mode. The girls came albeit a bit suspiciously at the end. Normally the charge doesn't end until the troughs have been reached. Anyway if it works and you can see some video footage you can see the mighty Patou in motion in glorious technicolour. If it doesn't work then doo biddly splot I'm a silly twot. By the way there is no sound, the herd was in stealth mode.

Right the gauntlet has been thrown down!! My task now is to replicate same video/feed shemozzle. Our lot are a right lazy bunch so the video may last some days before they approach their troughs!! Maybe we're feedding them too much!
