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 now has his full growth, I’m pretty sure! 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’s fleece weight this year is 3.3 kg/7.3 pd. His test results are: 17.5 micron, 81 mm length, 57 N/ktex tensile strength.
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
