Thank you to Steve, Barbs and Kara for sending these charming photographs when they came to see the lambs -

Here's Kara meeting and getting to know one of our hand reared lambs.

They were also able to witness one of our ewes lambing - she need a helping hand with her first lamb - The left photograph show David holding the ewe down while Cathy delivered the lamb. The next photograph shows Cathy bringing the second born lamb to the new mum to clean and look after.

Lambing is still going well - we have been kept busy with lots of triplets this year - to date we have had 11 set of triplets, two set of quads and one set of quins (sadly one of the quins was stillborn) we have 12 ewes left to lamb
