Who doesn’t like a sporty looking car? This Mustang 5.0L V8 belongs to the gentleman who will be house-sitting for us. He has already been vetted by Herc and given the sniff of approval. Poor Herc is a bit lame. First he was favouring one front leg but a few days later it was the other. Tomorrow we will give him a pedicure and see if it helps. His toes have got a bit long so perhaps that is making him walk differently and affecting his legs. A day or two ago we stood his two front legs in a bucket of (almost) hot water and it did seem to help. We’ll do that again after we’ve trimmed his toes for him.

Herc wants to take a spin in the Mustang and impress the lady sheep.

Nice car! We have our younger son's antique sports car housed in our garage, next to mine. Poor Herc. I hope he will be fine while you are away.

I hope so too. At least there will be someone here to keep an eye on him.

@DianneN Oh definitely! He doesn't have to do anything else - just be kind to Herc.

Nice to have a house sitter. I think it's important! Actually I would love to do that, but then who would look after my house?

If the house is unoccupied for more than six weeks, then our insurance lapses. But it's best to have someone here anyway.

@shebish He probably won't like it but it might help. He'll get extra bread after so I'm sure he'll forgive us for any indignities.

Nice wheels! I've always been partial to Mustangs. I had one back in the 80s and loved it so much! I do hope Herc's mani/pedi helps. Poor baby.

He isn't very bad. It might just be a bit of arthritis. We've soaked his leg before and it has helped. Maybe he needs to go north for the winters.

@minx267 He is about 13 or 14 which is very old for a sheep. At the moment he looks really good apart from this occasional limp that he gets.

I'm sure they're popular but you don't see too many of them. There might be more in the cities perhaps.

He has hard toes but they can't grow 'in'. They are a bit long though so we'll trim them back to what they should be.

Very nice to look at, though totally impractical! I once toyed with the idea of a sports car but it would never get used. Currently my car is full of several large rolls of plastic netting!

@valmnz I was thinking your Melbourne trip must be getting close. Is someone going with you on the Ghan? We went to the Ghan Museum in Alice Springs. The history of all that area is so interesting.
