New Years celebrations on a croft meant waking up to find three calves not in the same field as the sheep, but on the other side. No need for a show jumping horse here, the calves have a pretty good clearance. So, while the Crofter worked on putting up more electric fencing, out came the rattle bucket and off we went to put them in the far field while whistling…
We three calves, 2 Shetland, a saler
Jumped a fence having had a confer.
Field and fountain, moor or mountain
The byre we do prefer.
O, jump like thunder, what a height.
Par our flight on a dark night
Bawling cattle, shake and rattle
Guide buckets to end the plight.
