So while I was down in Devon visiting my Mum and indulging myself with baths and lie ins,and watching the lovely Kate Humble, Kate Daniels was moving the ewes into the barn ready for lambing. It sounds like it was a bit of a chew, with her trusty helper Daniel and the extra help of Emma and Annie, and with a little detour to A and E with Annie, who was fine, all the ewes are now in the barn.
So it is now count down …….. there due date is from April 14th and they look ready, having bagged up nicely!That doesn’t mean having packed a nightie and toothbrush ready for the ambulance! It means their udders are nicely full and their teats are looking ready ……. I think…. I am a people Nurse not a veterinary one!
So the waiting begins….. they are drinking loads in the heat, and waiting……………. I have been so tempted to pretend that one has started to see how quickly Kate runs to help…… but that would not be nice and although I am not 100%nice I am nicer than that!
