Countdown to lambing

Well although we have five weeks to go, it will be here too soon. The ewes expecting triplets are delighted to be receiving VIP treatment, a trough full of sheep nuts and bucket full of yummy minerals. The ewes expecting twins will start to receive extra feed next week and the singles, tough, they will just get grass/silage.

We have just weaned off 16 calves from their mothers, a noisy affair for a few days but the cows looked relieved not to be feeding big calves, when they will be expecting another soon. Our eldest cow Heidi, will be 19 in May and is very proud of her calf, born on Friday 13th January. She is very much looking forward to being outside on grass.
