As I have pointed out before, we at Hatman Mansions are very fond of extreme cooking. Recipes, like rules, should be ignored at all times.
In fact, we enjoy extreme sports of any kind. So when a video popped up on Facebook this morning offering “extreme shepherding” it instantly caught my eye. Well, what remains of them after “Phuza Thursday” at the Bush Tavern, an integral part of the stellar panoply of hostelries purveying the Umdloti Vibe. That was an interesting selection of words in that last sentence, wasn’t it?
I was just testing my brain to ascertain exactly how many synapses were indeed sparking after last night and, I am unsurprised to report, the Brain-o-meter is pointing steadily at the region marked “Very Few”.
But, you are right, I digress. As did these Welsh sheep farmers, who instead of sitting in front of their fires and sipping Ovaltine with their Gwyneths while watching repeats of The Vicar of Dibley, decided instead to watch their flocks by night… running around with a load of LED illuminations on their backs. I kid you not. This is clearly how they roll in Aberystwyth.
So, without even attempting to nudge in any weak jokes involving the words “wool”, “eyes”, “pullovers” and “Welshmen shagging sheep stories”, please allow me to introduce a right rollicking little, er, clip produced by the, um, “BaaaStuds”…
Tell me you didn’t enjoy that. No, you can’t, can you? I have filed this under “Inspirational Videos”. It shows what can be done if your ambition in life extends further than sitting in front of the fire, sipping Ovaltine etc.
All you need is a whole field full of sheep, a bunch of LED lights and live somewhere really boring like Aberystwyth or Cape Town.
