Well we is on the last 100 to lamb so its slowing down some at last, I have 5 little ones in the foster pens and the 3 bigger ones which is not bad really seeing as it can be up to 17 orphans, I will take the camera down today and take some pics of them for the last time till they are waened and outside. The bigger ones are running riot when they are let out as usual George was sulking the other day as his tail dropped off but he was back on form last night. It was very quiet around the farm last night as almost all of the older ones where put back on the moors ;D I said goodbye and see you in June when they come down again for clipping and dipping. Back is holding out as is the rest of me, right I better make a start on the breakfast before we start on the rabble talk to you soon.
Couple of questions if you don't mind Carolann - how old are the sheep when they first lamb? Do they produce lambs every year? How old are the babies before they go into the fields/moors? Hope all goes well with the last 100

Well lambings almost over for another year we are down to the last 20 or so and I have some time to do the garden and catch up with things in there. Auricula the sheep are 2yrs old when they first lamb and yes they can have a lamb every year, the babies going on the moor well that depends on how big and strong they are if we are not sure they stay down home till we are some have been born outside and all we have done is to catch, rubber and mark them. Well I think thats it for this year but I will keep in up-dated on how Poppy, George, Ginny, Tiny Tim and his little girlfriend are doing throughout the year. Thanks to all for sharing the season with us on the farm.
