Our first lambs !!!!
« on: March 22, 2017, 09:38:35 pm »
We have read, relied on and learnt from this forum for the past 18 months and tonight one of our 6 shearlings gave birth to her first (and our first) lambs. All are doing great, the lambs were textbook delivery and up on their feet looking for milk within minutes, which may be thanks to their derbyshire gritstone dad !

Thanks to everyones contributions who've helped us along !
