Call from the farmer!

    Recommended Posts

    I text the farmer on my permission as always to say I'd be on the fields this morning. I'd not been set up 10 mins when he calls. Has your dog been in with the sheep!! No was my reply she's been mooching round the field with me whilst I've set some decoys out. Which she had. Well a dog has just attacked a sheep in the field and made a right mess of it. He said he'd confronted a fella with two greyhounds and he denied it so was asking me. I felt awful that he'd asked me but then his land his prerogative. She 100% had not gone in the field with the sheep which was 2 fields away. Anybody had a situation like this? I don't know whether to ring and see if it's ok or just leave it.

    Many thanks fellas

    The polite thing would be to call and ask about the sheep. The farmer will know that the greyhounds were likely to be responsible for the attack.

    Thanks JDog, I did as you suggested. Sheep are ok the farmer said apart from bite wounds to their necks they may or may not lose their lambs. It's turned out after the police turned up it was travellers. No doubt coursing hares, of which there are quite a few here.

    Once again thanks for your suggestion

    That's a very diverse farmer, to stop travelling folk with running dogs and accept on face value it wasn't them but you.

    Sorry Kyska, I'm not quite with you, he didn't accuse me he asked me. And that was all I knew up until the phone call to the farmer as JDog suggested. When he then told me he'd jumped in the jeep and found a couple of fellas bundling dogs into the back of a van. Said they were up north. Then Newark. So he took pictures of them in the van and the plates and once the police turned they traced the vehicle to a traveller site. Not diverse I'd like to say quick thinking!!

    I think he means to not prejudge the two travelers (obvious guilty party) and ask you instead.

    I get what you mean now 😁. He said he had to ask me just to make sure, before he sped off to confront them.
