First signs of spring!

Freddie is 5 weeks old today.  He is growing fast and is settling in well to his farming routine already.  Molly is very chuffed to be a big sister and is very excited about the start of lambing.  She loves being up in the lambing sheds with us and has her very own bucket for feeding the sheep!

We have glorious sunshine here today and we're hoping it will stay with us for the next few weeks so our lambs and mums have the best start on the new spring grass.  The ewes are all looking well and we can't wait for the lambs to begin arriving.  It is a strange time the week before we start as we all feel a bit twitchy in anticipation!  This year we're particularly looking forward to seeing Basil's offspring, if they look anything like their Dad we will have a lot of teddy bear look a likes.

Our lambing weekends are very soon so  please come along and see our flock and the lambs and enjoy a day out with us and the Earth Trust.  Dates are 16, 17, 23 and 24 March, 10am until 4pm, for more details please see our website www.camillaandroly.co.uk

Our posts will be more regular as lambing begins and we can't wait to tell you all about the new life being born up in the sheds.

More soon

Camilla, Roly, Molly, Freddie, Boris and Belle
