The Fourth Escape

On Friday midday I went to Victor Harbour for the afternoon. And it seems inevitable now that they were gone again when I returned around 4.30pm. Haven't seen nor heard them all weekend – despite a long back-of-paddock look yesterday with A & M (grasses and rape are well over my head) and alone Saturday. They are serial absconders, boundary breakers. As long as they have food and water and no dogs attack them they are ok. Lack of water could become an issue, as could dog attacks, or people nabbing (apparently they are desireable as breeders—anyone who know sheep will work out they are castrated and no good for that, and as meat). A sign at the general store HELP Missing Sheep. X two Dorper wethers, tagged. Please call if you've seen them. 

  8:11am I placed the ad on the notice-board at the Post Office next to the one for the 'Missing Black Bull - branded' then I looked again up at the end of Luke Rd, tracked some poos that look like theirs at the top - then nothing. I wonder if they've been taken? Sheep-napped.

the paddock where they are not

Up the paddock back shaking lupin bucket singing 'Here boys!' kind of 'hearBooooyeees'; cleaned and filled their water trough.
