Lambs

Latest arrivals

This year our first lamb popped out on 5th January. To be honest we've been very lucky with the weather, but we did have shelter in case things got realy tough. Overall I was very pleased with the fact that we had all of our lambs within 17 days, although most were born within a 5 day period. Al mums managed to lamb really easily this year and all are growing well: 6 males and 5 females.

The next batch

  Lamb at 1 week    

The 2nd round of lambing in 2012 should occur in early September if all goes to plan. That means putting the ram in with the ewes in April - timing is the big challenge with everything else that goes on then.

Southdown Portland crosses

In 2011 we used a Southdown ram with our Portland ewes.
