Lambs are looking well and growing strongly, the singles in particular are doing well. As the lambs get older they are eating more grass and taking less milk from their mums, much to their relief. Another few weeks and I will have a go at weighing them in my makeshift weigh crate. The lambs will be weaned at the end of July to allow the ewes time to gain condition before being put back to the ram in November.
Last years lambs had a brief holiday for a few weeks at a paddock in a village nearby. The lush grass clearly wasn't exciting enough and after pushing their way through the hedge and making a break for it, they had to come back home in disgrace!
