Well, it looks like Leo's done his stuff. Apart from Jura, who's been covered twice, none of the other ewes seem to have come back into season. Jura will be 16 days past her second service tomorrow, so if Leo shows no interest, that will be his job done for this year.

We're planning to move the ewes into the five acre field on Friday, with the three ewe lambs. Dickie will join Leo in the orchard. The five acre field has a good field shelter. The ewes will stay there until lambing time; once lambed, they'll go into Sheepfold, I think.

If all are in lamb, then I'll be lambing from 25th March to 4th April, which is not too bad. I'll ask the vet if he knows a scanner, who'll come after Christmas.
