Temporary sheep country

Yesterday our urban environment turned a little bit country. Much bleating, much baa-ing. Sheep – dozens of them – were parked up nearly all morning in a trailer beside the St Andrews Church next door. It was a hot day, but at least the big oak trees provided shade.

The trailer unit parked next door, shaded by the church trees.

Not much headroom!

Finally, at 11.30am the truck arrived, connected with the trailer and moved off.

    I would call the driver of this particular truck “humane” for parking it in the shade of the large trees. Nearly every other trailer or truck unit I have come across this summer is parked in full glare of the hot summer sun. I can’t imagine the distress and state of the animals left within nor their condition upon arriving at their destination and wonder why the animal welfare is so often disregarded when farm animals are involved or that the farmers income isn’t affected by the condition of his animals upon final delivery.
