Last Friday, Mudchute Frankie, our strapping Oxford Down ram left the farm for a bit of city farm matchmaking! Frankie is off to stud at Surrey Docks City Farm, where he will be spending some quality time with a few of their lovely Oxford ewes. I made it down to Surrey Docks to visit him and had the chance to see meet some of his new girls! Frankie should be back at Mudchute some time next month and if all goes to plan, his sons and daughters should make their debut next April.

Frankie in his halter, but a bit tentative. If only he knew where he was going, he’d be jogging!
Up he goes, with a little help!
All loaded up and on his way to Surrey Docks!

Looking a bit sheepish?
He’s settled in very well, that’s the face of a very happy and contented ram!
And his new girls are lovely!
Fingers crossed for the pitter patter of little hooves next spring!
