Lilly and her friend

Lilly our pet lamb has a new friend. It is a girl calf that we have weaned from its mother. They eat and even sleep next to one another. Sometimes when lying down the calf will rest her head on Lilly and sometimes she even licks her.

Our walk

We went for a walk up the Hackett to the hut and it took us about 1hour and 15 min instead of 1hour and 45 minutes. It was really hot and a lot of people were swimming in the river. My brother and I took out bikes while mum and dad walked. Some people had dogs with them. We went and had a look at the waterfall (Whispering Falls) but because there has been no rain it wasn't very big. The water was coming out of moss at the top of the hill.

At the River

The other day we all went to the Appleby river with my two cousins. It was a really hot day but I had heaps of sunscreen on so I didn't get burnt. There was a branch in the water by the riverside, there were crawlies and ells underneath it. We caught 4 crawlies and made little pens for them and let them go when we went. There was one really big one and it kept fighting with the others. The water was really warm.

Our hay

We did our hay on Monday. I helped rake it, then baled it and then dad loaded it onto the truck ready to go to another farm.
