When I'm calling ewes ---
Two hundred ewes have been specially selected and rounded up by Farmer Bob and his trusty sheepdog Fly. They are being brought into the farm steading so that the sponsors number can be sprayed onto each of them.
One of the local volunteers drafted in for the day gets to work spraying a different sponsors number on each of the ewes backs as they pass through the sheep pens. Numbering the sheep

"Hold Me back" - the Tup not Farmer Bob!
Farmer Bob and a stout hearted volunteer have painted red grease paint (raddle) on Mickey's chest so that the winning ewe can be identified from the rest of the flock. You can tell by the grin that Mickey is really excited about being selected. Farmer Bob seems a tad excitable as well. In "chest a minute" the action will begin. Farmer Bob has been perfecting his brick laying technique in the last few months and seems a dab hand with that trowel. He doesn't even need to look at what he is doing. What a star! I hope he is being sponsored for wearing that hat and advertising all over the world.
Mickey is loaded into the four wheel drive bike trailer by Farmer Bob ready to go out to the field of dreams. Fly the sheep dog keeps an eye on proceedings from the seat of the bike. Mickey said he was so keen that he would drive the bike himself. Mickey the tup goes on the bike

The ewes are moved out from the sheep pens and back into the field closely followed by Farmer Bob and Mickey the tup. Mickey didn't get to drive.
Mickey makes it to the field in one piece in the trailer hitched to the back of Farmer Bob's four wheel bike. Another willing volunteer helps shoo him out of the trailer (as though he needed shoo'ed!). Sheep in the field

Mickey is out of the trailer and soon spots a bunch of females and makes a bee-line towards them. The assembled crowd of people wait expectantly hoping their sponsored sheep will be chosen by Mickey.
Well maybe he did need shoo'ed because before he reached the ewes he decided to stop for a bit of lunch, well I suppose the boy has to keep his stamina up. A bit of lunch I think

But it's not very long before he decides that the ewes are too tempting so he ambles across nonchalontly, not trying to look to keen (but we know better).
The girls are all very interested in this newcomer in their midst and check him out thoroughly. Wow it's a boy, fit good looking....!

Hello girls, not seen you for a while

The ewes are still interested in the newcomer in their midst and he is interested in them. Mickey has a good sniff around a few of the ewes.
And one of them is interested enough to stand for him and let him have his wicked way with her. Well it's what they have waited a year for!

Are you sure this is my good side?
Mickey is aware that there are a lot of people out there who donated to Macmillan Cancer relief so he makes sure Farmer Bob gets a good photo.
A bit of a showman this he even lets Farmer Bob get a close up so that he can see which Ewe has been selected, making sure that he has marked her rump well with the red grease paint applied to his chest earlier.

But Mrs Ewe has had enough, so she decides to canter off leaving Mickey following on behind. Ain't love grand! But I am sure it won't be long before Mickey is choosing another girlfriend of the moment, after all the field is empty of any competition.
Time passed slowly for Fly as he waited for Mickey to get down to business. Fly has been told by Farmer Bob to wait on the bike as he may upset Mickey and the ewes if he runs around.
