Herbie in the garden

We had some lovely sunshine the other day so took Herbie for his first look at the garden. The outdoor enclosure isn't ready yet (the shed part arrived yesterday and now needs building!!) so took him on the lawn for 10 minutes where he soon found the weeds!!
I am hoping I have now learnt how to reduce the photo size and have attached a photo!!

Isn't it fab to see them outside enjoying the sunshine and grazing naturally? Herbie certainly seems to be making the most of it. :)

Yes it was great as it was the first time he had gone out - I tried putting the shed together this afternoon but they had sent the wrong screws and I didn't have any the right size and wouldn't have got to a shop before closing so it is still waiting but this is the tongue and groove garden chest from www.buyshedsdirect.co.uk .I am hoping to replace the removable front panel with a Perspex sheet(4mm twin wall polycarbonate) and then will have an 8'x 4' (initially while still small) run attached - the nearest part to the shed will hopefully be a mini greenhouse type bit(!!) but still a work in progress so any suggestions very gratefully received!!

Thanks Joe that is really useful and probably would have got it all wrong and messed it up so very much appreciate the advice before I managed to do it!!!
