It's now less than three weeks until we start lambing. I've upped the ewes' feed and they're now being fed twice a day; they still have a lick as well. Their hay consumption is down but that might be because the grass is coming in now. The tups are eating less now too.

I've got out the lambing box to check the contents. With all the incidents of twin lamb disease on TAS forums, I've bought a bottle of Lucozade and some black treacle, just in case but I will get some Calciject as well. As long as the weather stays OK, we sould be fine, hopefully.

I wonder if we will have all white lambs this year.
