I cannot believe it is twelve months since I last wrote about lambing at the farm.
Tuesday 27th February 2018: This morning one of our Ewes “Prancer” has given birth to twin lambs.
- Further update 10:20 a third lamb has arrived!
- Two ram lambs and a ewe lamb
Thursday 1st March: On a snowy Thursday morning. Mary gave birth to twin lambs, mum and lambs doing well in a lovely warm barn.
Friday 2nd March: A very large ram lamb born to our Ewe Strimmer.
All Ewes and lambs doing well.
Saturday 10th March: Sadly one of our Ewe’s Liz gave birth to twin lambs but they were dead on arrival. She was given a dose of antibiotics in case of an infection and regularly monitored. On Sunday morning the vet had to be called as she didn’t seem to be getting any better. A third lamb was removed by the vet. Liz remains poorly but we are hopeful that she will pull through, she has always been a very good mum. In the meantime the Vet is going to get tests done on the dead lamb as a precaution.
