Lambing has begun

Today we have had our first lambs of the year....the beginning of a busy 5-6 weeks, as there are approx. 350 ewes to give birth.

It has started a couple of days earlier than we expected, so today we also moved all the pregnant ewes into the 'lambing paddocks' - pastures which have been kept free from grazing over the winter so that there's (hopefully) plenty of grass for them. The ongoing cold weather has been a problem, slowing the usual spring growth, so finding enough grass will be a challenge if it doesn't warm up soon.

This little lamb got a bit cold and needed warming up in the bottom of our aga!

So, we're really praying for green grass, happy sheep and healthy lambs!
