Erm, that might not be what you think it means.

I'm not sure I buy into this map. I think people are on the average going to bed earlier than what is indicated. I think all the night owls took this survey while the larks were asleep.

Depending on how I feel. I need my sleep...but wake up around 2:30 a.m. These days. I think my cycle is screwed up. I used to go to sleep at 10:00 p.m. And wake up at 5:00a.m. That used to be my normal.

@chai2,
I love my sleep - generally sleep like I've been clubbed.

A few times a year I'll have a night where I fall down sideways across the bed around 9 and sleep til 6.

I find when I go on vacation, I go to bed earlier and get up earlier every day til I'm asleep at 9 and waking up between 3 and 4 a.m. That's not practical for me in the long run.

@chai2,
we only use the ram marker belts in the second round where some ewes don't get "Bumped up against" too well.
Rams so accoutered look like theyre a bunch of Mexican Bandidos wearing their bandolleros.

We have 6 working rams, each with a separate genetic trait we wish to capture. And to keep from too much inbreeding

I'm in favor of an afternoon nap...probably the reason I no longer sleep through the night....

Whenever I can't get off to sleep, I always go out into the hall and loudly recite "Imagine an imaginary menagerie managed by an imaginary menagerie manager" five times.

It doesn't help me sleep, but wakes up the whole family so at least I have people to talk to.

Here are our pretty senoras after they get bumped. They get a good nights sleep after that.

@chai2,
See, what we do is have them do thir breeding at night (the number of female eggs is statistically greater when the ewes are bred in the normal night period in the Fall. (sheep are most fertile in decreasing daylight periods).
What breed rams are those in the first pic? They look like a hair
sheep breed. The second pic looks like Dorsets

I can usually sleep no more than three hours before awaking, and being wide awake. So i try to do that at least twice durnig the day, and perhaps take a nap or two. Maybe it's an artifact of age.

Being 50% Welsh, I feel compelled to have this site listed as a favourite, for some reason. I also feel funny when someone talks about tupping.

@Lordyaswas,
You and farmer should have many stories to share.

Like the art of shoving a ewes hinds legs into your wellies.
