Wednesday 20th April:  Triplets born with the assistance of “Midwife Andrea”. The first was born backwards, the second was born normally and the third had it’s legs pointing backwards so Andrea had to assist with triplet one and three.  All three lambs were on their feet within 20 minutes of birth and are lively and vociferous. This evening Andrea had to tube feed them colostrum.

We are now patiently waiting for our last Ewe to lamb (pictured below)

Her lamb was born Thursday 21st April 2016

 

Once we know the lambs are feeding okay we let them out into the field with the other lambs and ewes.  It is lovely to watch them running and jumping around with the other lambs.
