One year we tried spying on the expecting ewes by video. Richard installed a camera with a wireless transmitter that sent its signal right to our TV in the livingroom. Wow. No hauling yourself off to the sheepfold in the middle of the night.
This was a brilliant use of technology! Or, it would have been but that the sheep seemed to know where the camera’s blind spots were. If they were going to do something important, they chose to do it in the corners not revealed. It turns out you just have to go down there and look. Just get out from under the covers, slip into your bathrobe and mud boots, and go down there.
