During a recent 7A Agriculture lesson the students were given the opportunity to halter some sheep and parade them on the grass in front of the Outdoor Education centre. Gavin had chosen the young ewes from last year’s lamb drop for the purpose. Some of these ewes were somewhat reluctant to take a little exercise on the end of a rope; however, 7A were tenacious in their endeavour to persuade these ewes that this was a great idea. The result was a lot of fun with some students having to train their ewe to walk on a halter and some getting the easy option of a ewe that had already been to a show.
