Too Good To Refuse [Apr. 11th, 2015|09:47 am]
Tony Grist
The thin young man at the door was a farmer, come round on the off chance that we might let his sheep graze our fields. He's in the middle of lambing and said it was nice to have an excuse not to be in the yard. I don't suppose I've ever- in all my life- worked as hard as that young man is working now.

He isn't offering any money but undertakes to mend our fences and harrow our ground for free. I called Matthew for his opinion and he was all in favour.  So I called the young man and told him he had a deal.

And just imagine... A field full of sheep! I love sheep, so to me that sounds quite wonderful to have. And, of course, you don't have to worry about all the practicalities of animal husbandry, so I'd say it seems like a good deal if only for the aesthetic value of it.

(Also, if you're not using the field for anything anyway, why not?)

Though personally I might have asked for a peppercorn rent in the form of a lamb shank and a bag of wool each year. Just because I love sheep, but I also love lamb shanks and wool...

The farmer will be doing his bit by repairing the fences and harrowing the soil- but a lamb shank would be good.
