April*

This afternoon Honey gave birth to a little girl, as Honey hasn't been well this was a rather unexpected birth and I'm pleased to say so far so good everyone is looking well and fingers crossed, the next few days are always such a worry. So that just leaves the rather portly Mugette to produce. How fitting if she gave birth on the first of May. May day is traditionaly celebrated here with a posy of lily of the valley ( muget). It looks as though little April ( her temporary name) may possibly have a home to goto already. It would be good as I won't be able to keep her she is too closely related to Dumpling. I will be pleased when all the babies are born and I can put the little troop back together at the moment Dumpling has been separated off ( with a friend) and hes none to happy about it.

The Ouessant Sheep originates from the island of Ouessant, part of a tiny archipelago just off the north coast of Finistere, Brittany. The island of terror as it was known to some, was swept by the full force of the atlantic’s weather, the hardy sheep adapted to survive on poor grazing from salty clifftop meadows. It was the women of the island that raised the sheep, renowned for their black wool to weave into cloth known locally as berlinge and their meat with its sweet and delicate taste.

La race "Mouton d'Ouessant" est originaire de l’île d’’Ouessant qui fait parti d’un petit archipel au large du Finistère, Bretagne. L’île de l'épouvante comme c'était connu par certains était balayé par les intempéries de l’atlantique, ces moutons rustiques s'adaptaient à survivre sur les pâturages pauvres des falaises salées. C’était les femmes de l’île qui élevaient les moutons réputés pour leur laine noire à tisser « la berlinge » une étoffe régionale et leur viande avec un goût doux et délicat.
