Just a quick blog to say that Carolyn had twin gimmer lambs this morning, totally unaided and in the shelter. The first I knew she had lambed was when I checked out the ewes at 7am and a little white lamb peeped out from the field shelter. This evening whilst we were doing the evening feed, one of the Teeswater ewes didn't come in. She was sat down in the field. We got her into the barn as she was in the finally stage of labour. We had to pull the lamb out as it was a big lamb and this ewe was a first time lamber. She had a BIG gimmer lamb. Just off out to check on them all and to make sure that the Teeswater ewe's lamb has a full tummy of milk. Photos hopefully tomorrow.
Denise and Tim owned a smallholding on the North Yorkshire Moors,from Aug 2003 to June 2012. We have now moved back to suberbia where life is now spent with our 2 doys (Holly & Deefa), selling exotic fibre and hand dyed knitting wool and trying to convert the garden into one that will provide an assortment of veggies for us.
