The scanner was here at 6.35am today - she's visiting eight holdings and doing 600 sheep today yes What a star, Gillian at www.booscan.co.uk.

All nine are in lamb. Of the three gimmers, Niamh and Nova have singles and Nellie has twins. Of the six ewes, Luna, Lucy and Juno have twins and Jura, Jinx and Lyra have singles. I'm a wee bit disappointed with Jura and Lyra, who both had twins last year. Jinx has had three single tup lambs previously and I expect the same this year.

Maybe I didn't get the flushing quite right this year sad. Ah, well, live and learn.

And so long as I have thirteen healthy lambs and nine healthy ewes at the end of April, I'll be well pleased.
