I do hope that Jenny will forgive me as I've not said much about the visit we had to Ballacosnahan to see the Manx Laoghtans and more importantly, as founder members of her fan club Big Mel and the very beautiful Little Nell.
These were just some of the beautiful Laoghtans that there are there. Having just had their hair cuts they looked very posh and varied in colour from chocolate brown, to a creamy coffee colour. The young lambs are a shade darker.
Ballacosnahan is very much an "organic" farm, as people have to say these days, I prefer to say proper farm where nature has a place to flourish and the farm land and stock get along. We saw many butterflies when visited. Even the chickens seem to know that they can wonder where they please as these ones did.
So thank you dear Jenny our friend, it was like meeting an old friend and we hope to continue to be very old friends and yes we would like to come again perhaps at lambing next year - Aly has her wellies at the ready, but if not then, thanks for this opportunity. We send our love and never ending best wishes to you both.
