Of Brad and colza

Brad doesn’t get milk anymore. He is a teenager now. But he is just as cute as he always was and still wants to be with me (probably because I yield granulated sheep food). Two days ago I was deworming the sheep with Niratil, a product, that has to be applied by intramuscular injections. Brad didn’t like that and was pouting for some hours. But in the meantime he likes me again (probably because I yield granulated sheep food).

The plants grow like crazy, it’s green here and full of blossoms (and of stinging nettles). The weather isn’t the best though, it’s cold and rainy (yes, I know that even wannabe-French people are obsessed by the weather).

On some of the fields around the property grows colza. I doubt, that Brad would eat colza. But I like how it smells and its colour. A friend who lives about 20km south of here says, that colza-fields are too bright. When he wakes up and the sun shines on the colza-field under his window, he has to close his eyes.
