A freezer full of lambRSS feed

We got our two tup lambs back from the butcher last Friday. The butcher was extremely encouraging and helpful. He said that their conformation was very good but that they were a bit fat over the shoulder and the loin. I was feeding them a bit of cake, which I won't do next year, and they were just over seven months old, when I intended to have them away at six months.

Still, it's a learning process and hopefully we'll do better next year. Looking forward to our first roast lamb - maybe for Christmas!
