Jonathan: Sheep are allowed down from the hill grazings today, 15 October. The grazing regulations for Eriskay require all shareholders to open up their own crofts for other shareholders to graze. In theory this means all livestock are free to roam the island (below the hill fence), but in practice flocks tend to be hefted to certain areas. We’ll not be wanting our first lambs before beginning of April, so we have to keep our ewes and the ram fenced in (and apart) until beginning of November. We’ve got the ewes and ewe lambs in one field, the rams and ram lambs in another, across the road and out of sight!
