Disaster, I am afraid from my point of view. Our Hedsman has been 'rolled' by a stock bull and broken his arm, so the rest of us are taking in turns to milk for the next month or so as we cannot get a relief in. Which means I am not going to be able to take the weekend off of the rally. So as far as I am concerned you will have to count me out. I will PM every one who has said yes so far later tonight, I can still contact Tackeroo and make sure it is still ok for the rest of you if you would like me to. Very fed-up, but the animals have to come first as usual
Thanks for the PM Helen, it's a shame you can't make it as it was your idea but I am sure the rest of us will have a glass or two for you. As you say the animals welfare come first. I have some very un-fond memories from the weeks following the birth of my children & would not want those poor cows to go un-milked for a weekend!
Sorry to hear about your herdsman and now unable to getaway for the week-end. We will have to meet up with you another time......... looks like it will be after march as we have just booked a ferry and are heading off to France and Spain next month.
Thanks for letting us know Helen sorry to hear of your troubles. We might not be able to make it either Ive got an abcess under my tooth and its driving me nuts and have just looked outside and its snowing thats all we need.Look forward to meeting you another time.
HelenB, Sorry to hear of your herdsman's injury and that you cannot make the Gathering of the Vans. I will still be going and hope others will turn up too.
Unfortunately I won't be able to keep tabs on this forum as I'm away from home and my computer from tonight until after the rally.
So please, someone else turn up.
