Day 14 - spring lambing 2012

It really could be July! We've all been in the lambing sheds in t shirts today, I can never remember that happening before! Very happy for it to continue while we are lambing and after this weekend when we are open again to visitors but after that we need RAIN! We can hardly remember what it looks like!

So, not only do we have one very special Badger, but now we have two more! See attached photo. One of our favourite ewes had triplets this morning, two of which have Badgers markings again and they are girls, the other little girl is white so completely different to her two sisters.

Badger is doing really well and charging around the nursery pen with all her friends. We had Goring preschool visit us today and Badger got lots of strokes which she seemed to like. Her coat really is so soft and so are her ears!

Henry our first ever pet lamb is expecting her first lambs any day now, in fact she has been hogging the same corner in the barn for the last 2 days - come on Henry!

The lambs which we have already put outside are growing by the day with the sun on their backs and their Mums are loving tucking into the growing grass.

Hope you like the photo which our friend Ian Beecher Jones took this morning of our amazing set of triplets after they had just been born....who is more proud Roly or their Mum?!
