So where were we !!!Mid lambing I guess 🙂
and where are we now ….. well only one ewe to lamb so very nearly finished …. and 35 lambs to date !
These pictures were taken this afternoon …. can you spot Kate in 2 of them … I am not sure what she is doing!
This is Dolly and her ram lamb …. I guess as she had Bonny last year this must be Clyde ! What a bobby dazzler he is.
They really are the cutest things
and we are really pleased with how this years lambing has gone.
Other things ….. well Russel died peacefully in his sleep just over a week ago. An hour previously he had given me a tail wag as I finished my lambing shift for the night…. he is a big loss and we are missing him….. and it took 3 of us to round up 5 ewes on friday so a new sheepdog is needed soon! Enough said on the subject ……
The piglets are growing well and we are enjoying some warmer weather.
Veg plot planting is next on the agenda ….. oh yes and the opening of our farm gate shop!!
All painted …. posters and signs ordered but not with us yet and we are hoping to open on friday !!
So it is time for the Archers and to make sandwiches for tomorrow and then an early night, I guess, ready for me to go back to work tomorrow nd for Kate to spend the day at the Butchers !
