A close up of Dotty, or Woozer as she is often called, don't ask why we don't know either, probably Dotty woo became Dotty Woozer, then Woozer, or Boggit. Berners often end up with nick names.

The Famous Five!

Finally! All five of our Berners on one photo! Left to right, Rocky, Spotty, Dotty, Reba and Bliss. Dotty in the middle is a bit of a strange Berner which is why we kept her, she is more brown than black.

Reba is in season again so fingers crossed these two sort out who does what again, last summer Reba was a bit confused.

Team work

Different species, common purpose, to get the Ryelands away from the trough and eat the corn. Why Spot the Berner eats corn we have yet to discover but he does.

Snow 2

Its returned, and as the technogremlins have mucked up the video clip below for the time being here are some pics of Bliss and Reba in the garden this morning.


No business like snow business!

The Berners got a treat this morning, four inches of snow which they soon put to good use!
