Next year, I'm going to forget about the diary and just let Nature take its course.

Dan and I went out for a Chinese meal tonight - came back and Luna was lambing. Two feet and a head, but she was making a terrible fuss and nothing seemed to be moving. I had a moment of panic, phoned the vet and sent John (who's been dying to see a lamb born) for the car. I thought I'll have one more try, put on a bit of pressure and out she popped. John says to send someone else for the car next time.

It's a black ewe lamb, quite big and vigorous. It seems to know what it's doing, which is just as well as Luna doesn't seem to have much of a clue. I'll have a quick cuppa then go and see how they are getting on.

Just as well I left the first three ewes and their lambs out tonight (for the first time) or I wouldn't have had a spare pen.

Lucy is due tomorrow.
