Day 4 - Spring Lambing 2012
Clean floors, freshly strawed yards, buckets scrubbed - yes our vet students from the Royal Vetinary College have started and we are being well and truly sorted out! We have had some very strong and determined lambs born today, lots of triplets, twins and a few singles. The new large penthouse pens we have installed are proving very popular with the triplets, however as more ewes lamb over the next few days, the lambing barn will be heaving and lambs will be put into the closest pen available! We would like to turn some lambs outside for the first time tomorrow - one of our favourite jobs, but it might have to wait until Monday when the sun is forecast to come out again. Looking forward to another day . . . after some sleep!
