    I would tell you to resist the temptation but you would probably still email LM

    When I was lambing I realised you can steer sheep from about 500 yards away just using your arms...made me laugh :rolleyes: they're remote control cars.....secretly :ninja: :driver:
    whatt?? you need to come to our farm..seriously!!
    If I told my dad you compared a sheep with a remote control car, he'd laugh for dayyyyyyssss!!!
    when we heard our in we usually have 4 ppl and 13 dogs!!

    haha makes a bit more sense, but still you get a few little buggers who decide to bolt back. I acctaully though you were on about walking through a field waving your hands and the sheep goes exactly where she suppose to...lols

    Student finance is on my list of this afternoons jobs! I've applied for work on a farm in New Zealand with 2000 sheep and 900 cattle Exciting times!! This is the good bit of having a gap year!!

    Rach, I so don't envy that 8-3 shift!! I did a 10-3 shift, only for 3 nights to help out the farmer as he was unwell (how unfortunate is that in the middle of lambing!!!) and I was completely completely shattered!!! Other than that I mostly started at 8 in the morning and went on till dinner time, but a couple of days i started early/finished late depending.... I'm so sad I finished on tuesday I love lambing soooo much, even though sheep can be the most annoyoing things in the world sometimes!! I especially wish I was still there as since wednesday the weather has been sooo beautiful
    Josh, I want Liv to get a move on too!!!! :P:

    I want to go to NZ I love the mawriiiss, but be prepared they farm totally different over there, v.rarely call the vet out, they usually deal with things themselves involving the shot gun!
    I finish my job in 7 days, I will miss it, but I am really really homesick at the same time :o:

    Well done on the Bristol offer a few pages back
    Found this interesting quote from the rvc undergrad admissions section from their twitter:
    UCAS applicants: had an interview for BVetMed or Gateway? Remember the majority of decisions won't be sent until *end* of March (via Track)
    To me this looks like some RVC offers may come out before the end of the month...... ah what fun checking track again 3 times a day. Oh and we also know which way we will get our decision by track so no postie stalking is required:p:

    Oh joy :rolleyes:
    Do your Track not email you if it updates? I've only been on Track about 5 times, and mostly to check that that "Conditional" was still there :p: Wish Notts would get a move on though. If RVC updates before they do I'll be withdrawing so I can firm Cam, and I wouldn't want to deny them the chance to reject me properly :p:

    sometimes the email from track takes a couple of days to come through even if ur track has updated!
