Easter Sunday saw the rams being changed between the flocks at Island farm and those in Omihi.
In the true tradition of farming, James and cousin Victoria from Northumberland were up early on Easter Sunday morning gathering in the stud rams for "The changing of the rams!"
Mac was determined to hitch a ride on the motorbike and somehow managed to hang on despite the odds.
Jean drove down to Island farm early in the morning with rams in tow and drove home to Omihi later in the morning with a different set of rams.
The mid tupping changing of the guard between the flocks at Island Farm and Omihi went without issue and everyone made it to Sunday lunch in good time.
