In the red zone.

Every morning when I go out to weigh Tsar and feed the rest of the herd I watch the gate to the shed that Tsar and Thor (God of Thunder) are housed in. I suppose there is always a feeling of dread as when they hear the gate to the field open the two boys look out to see who it is, I am waiting to see both of them.

Thor is always first to stick his head through the bars of the gate and peer round to see who is coming. There is always a split second where I am holding my breath before Tsar then sticks his head through the gate, one rung lower. I then relax as I know he is up and about. This is the view of the gate this morning, a wonderful sight.



Again Tsar was bright and alert. Weighing in commenced and I was very excited to see that the little bugger has put on another 150 grams!

We only made one change to his regime yesterday, after several readers suggested it we have now started giving Tsar pro-biotic whole goats milk yoghurt. We have also stopped the Pro-rumen.

Now, hopefully, early days I know but fingers crossed. we are living in the 'red zone'.
