Thursday 12th April

On Thursday morning Beatrix had a tup lamb, he is a full pedigree Shetland ram, so we will have to wait to see how he grows to see if we sell him for breeding or not.
There was a moment of panic whilst Beatrix was giving birth, feet were seen, but she appeared to be having problems getting the head out. So a phone call to our neighbour, Pete, to come and assist. It took him 5 mins to arrive, by which time Beatrix had delivered her lamb, no problems.
As you can see from the photo she is out in the field with her lamb. The weather is so mild, outside is the best place for them both.
