Ewes With Lambs at Foot
« on: June 03, 2012, 05:45:26 pm »
Hi all - just thought I'd post some nice pics as a pleasant sheepy interude.


First pics are some of my ewes and lambs in a small 'mothering up' field immediatley after Id moved them up to their summer pasture (15 May). Lambs would have been 3wks to 5wks old there approx. The others are of the same Ewes in that warm weather we had week before last after being moved to a bigger field. The Ewes are Lleyn  x Wilts and the lambs are out of  polled composite shedding rams - one a lleyn-y wilts-y thing and one with a lot of Khatadin blood in him. All lambs will be shedding, some seem to have scurs.


















Hope you like em.... :farmer:

Lovely pictures and a lovely field of rape behind.
