Face Book

The lambs are coming fast and furious now. The dogs are quite willing to help and are often disappointed when they are left out of the pens. (pretend you don't see Laddie's tongue sticking out) There are times when they do get a chance to help. Sometimes it's just to be a cheering section for the lambs that end up needing to come into the kitchen for extra warmth or bottles. (yeah, his tongue is out again)Not all the work is being done by the humans and the dogs. We have voted this ewe as mother of the year. She's only a year old herself but needed no help with lambing and always knows where her lamb is. It only takes one call from her baby before she is by it's side.

All Kit knows is that lambing is exhausting work.
