Day 19 - Spring Lambing 2012

Thank you everyone who came and visited the farm and lambing barns today. We had another fantastic day with lots and lots of people. Unfortunalty the sheep that were due to lamb today, are still due to lamb! It was quite quiet on the lambing live front, but still lots to see and do on the sheep front.

One condition our lambs have experienced more this year than last year is their eye lashes growing inwards, which makes their eyes very weepy and potentially blind. One of the best treatments for this is a small injection of saline solution just under the skin near the eye, which helps to push those hairs outwards - a little sore in the short term, but as good as new in the long term.

More tomorrow!
