Day 16 - spring lambing 2012
Another beautiful day and some lovely lambs born, including a set of twins from Henry! Henry was our first orphan who we couldn't help but keep, and she is a real character. Unfortunately, when Roly arrived in the lambing sheds first thing this morning, she had already lambed and wasn't so keen on one of her lambs. We are keeping a close eye on her and hoping she will start to accept both her lambs by tomorrow.
We had a pre school group this morning from Oxford where our friend Carol works who helped us our first year here. She is a total star and its lovely that we've kept in touch and she brings the children out to see us. They had a cuddle with Badger and we even did a sheep manoevre with them too, which was great fun.
See attached photo of our two other little Badgers, aren't they sweet, particularly the one with the floppy ear!
