It's all go around here!
We started lambing last weekend and they are popping out thick and fast!

Minutes old.....

Finally found what they were looking for!
Last night I was walking a couple of lambs and their mum down to the paddock (once they've lambed we bring them closer to the house for a day - not always so easy) when I heard a burp next to me.  I looked around and a big old ewe looked me in the eye and gave another burp.  "Is that you Lucy?", I said and she came up for a stroke and then went on her way.
Five years ago I bottle-fed Lucy and Mabel for months.  When they got bigger, but weren't yet weened, we moved them to the chicken paddock.  One day in July there was quite a heavy rain shower, and I happened to look out.

I wondered why all the chickens were out, and took a closer look:

Lucy (on the right), and Mabel were not stupid - why get wet when there is a perfectly nice little house to sit in?



  1. I love this blog entry......so funny.

  2. And thanks to Ken Tarbox for publishing these pictures originally on the East Garston website - they were on our old computer which Jonathan threw out last week when I was at work and I thought I'd lost them forever!
