Making Hay While The Sun Shines.

I managed to get photos of a farmer gathering his hay into the big rolls in a field at Smeale, on a lovely hot summers day. The machine he used was brilliant, like a big vacuum that sucked up the cut hay and then spat it out ready rolled, very clever.

Traditional Manx Shepherding. (2 Images)

Its so lovely to see traditional ways of moving sheep and their lambs still practiced in the Isle of Man.
I came across these lovely lambs and their mothers on the coast road near to the Lhen in the North of the Island.
It was a beautiful spring day and lovely to see the lambs going out into the field to enjoy the warm spring sunshine.
