So today I was going to have a lie in 🙂 and I had declared that I was not going to get up until it was 4.5 degrees outside! It had been a cold night -2.7 brrrr !
So Kate went off to start the rounds and I snuggled down……… to be disturbed 5 minutes later by Kate letting me know that the fluffy ewe had started lambing and was pushing already! So with the temperature at 4.2 I got dressed.
And when Kate had finished the rounds we watched and waited and had coffe and home made cake for breakfast.
The little lamb……… or not so little lamb rallied well but was very slow to get on her long legs.
So we now have a long legged lamb and a short legged Mum, but we are positive she will do OK. Kate is on watch tonight as feeding is a little tricky but I feel quite good about it all.
We have just got home from the Droitwich egg round and are cooking some of our award winning sausages for tea.
