So it looks like four of our ewes will be lambing on 1st May 2016 – just in time for the first May bank-holiday. So come down to St Margaret’s Campsite for our own version of Lambing Live none of the organisation and a lot more chaos and squeaking.
Will update you on when the other four ewes get tupped.
Yes, we have put him with eight ewes. That is a potential of sixteen lambs next May – I must be crazy.
Why are we lambing so late you may ask …. well it has to be after teaching finishes. I reckon I can combine marking at home with lambing duties. I could make a nice cosy corner in the lambing shed to sit with my computer!
N.B. note new ear tag – Andrew showed me how to ear-tag our sheep at the weekend so now I feel OK about doing it myself. Of course it will take me a lot longer, but I am slowly learning this shepherding malarcky.
N.B. I really hope teaching has finished by this time …. oh no I need to go and check.
