Lambing is in full swing

20150326_174010 (1024x576)We would love to have just 2 lambs per ewe, as sheep only have 2 udders and lambs like to have one each. This ewe has had 4 lambs! So I will have to hand rear with a bottle 2 of them, which is a lot of work and often the lambs do not do as well as if they are reared by their mothers. At the moment we have 9 lambs that are on the bottle, fed 4 times a day.


Silver Catkins

Roman Recruits at Chester Fort

20150217_113348I took some of my many grandchildren to Chester’s Roman Fort on Hadrians Wall over half term to see if I could enlist them as new recruits! We had a very good time and spent about 2 hours at the site even though it was bitterly cold. It is one of the English Heritage sites along the wall and now I have bought a year’s membership,which also allows me to take up to six children at a time,[I think that would be rather an undertaking] so excellent value as there are quite a few English Heritage sites locally.
