Albert was the first of Vicki’s swains, at least that I noticed. To understand his name, you need to know that Vicki’s full name is Vicki Victoria. Hence Prince Consort Albert. Albert has grown really well this year–he was a bit leggy and funny-looking as a 1- and 2-year old (he’s the sheep on the left in the image). I have a theory that Vicki has told all her boyfriends that I’m basically ok. She and Prince, Leo, Albert, Elf, Curly and Horatio are a bit of a schoolyard gang. So, I often find all of them near me when I’m shepherding, because Vicki is ALWAYS with me if she can manage it. Albert’sfleece weight this year is 3.5 kg/7.7 pd, up from 2.5 kg/5.5 pd last year!
Check out the video below, with Albert leading the flock through the water hazard. He loves water! For more Albert stories, try searching the Farm Journals pages
