Lambing

Last weekend hubby and I headed to York to see our Grandson (and his mum & Dad).


We had been invited to K's Mum and Dad's farm for lambing.  There were already 154 new lambs when we arrived and unfortunately no new birth's whilst we were there.


Some of the sheep had had triplets so one baby had be given to another sheep.  Some had had four babies and some are kept as 'Pet Lambs' if another sheep won't take them.  They are in a pen by themselves and fed by K's dad until they are old enough to join the flock outside.

I got to hold them. 

They are so soft and warm and just want to nibble you all the time.


K's dad texted her later and said that two more lambs had dropped about ten minutes after we left.

Never mind there is always next year.
