Is where all the fun stuff happens.
The lambs that we put out to the fields yesterday were huge. They were like teenagers who want desperately to drive – but don’t have the facilities.
Where’s the first gear on this thing?
This lamb was constantly jumping onto different ewe’s backs. As soon as he jumped on, the ewes got up. He just went to another ewe and tried again.
Some lambs are more laid back than others.
These were the lambs we had to catch and take to the fields.
That evening at 6pm (!), I took Ben up the hill to check on them.
Ben had to be careful around the angry mothers.
But he had a gate between himself and the flock so he wasn’t in danger.
It was very windy and cold, so we soon headed inside.
That night, which checking the ewes in the pen for new lambs, I had a look at Georgia. She’s doing really well.
Then this morning I went with my dad to check on the sheep on some out farms. I met Darkie’s lambs, Sam…
They are both doing brilliantly as well.
Reach for the skies!
Then we came home and brought Kim with us to check on the sheep at home.
Kim likes watching sheep.
I think she’s waiting to pounce.
Kim has become something of an expert and turning lambs, mouthing at them and pawing at them. It’s a bit rough, but it works.
I saw Old Tilly and her lamb Lily.
And Bubbles and her lambs.
Along with young Tilly and her lambs.
Kim can even watch lambs off the quad.
