Well there are no prizes for guessing what has dominated most of our weekend. The lambs are steadily coming. The vet cousin has been back to help and the student daughter was in and out making sure she had time for a "lamb fix".
There are quite a few pet lambs now. They have been introduced to the shepherdess feeder which is a kind of warm bucket with teats so the lambs can help themselves to milk ad lib. There are a lot of advantages to this system. It's a great time saver rather than all those bottles. It is more natural because the lambs don't fill up all in one go but can have a little and often. The lambs don't get so attached to us humans. It does however take a bit of getting used to.
They soon get the hang of it.
Meanwhile there are lots of ewes still waiting .
There's also plenty of contented lambs who will soon be off outside.
