Lambing time

Our 'mini flock' of Lleyn ewes are almost bursting (!) at the seams, so we're on lambing standby again for the Easter holidays, albeit a week or so later than in 2016. Rearing sheep isn't our 'daytime job' by any stretch of the imagination, but is an incredibly rewarding pastime which keeps the fields in good condition and adds some diversity to our smallholding, yet can be quite a stressful rollercoaster ride at this time of year!

The lambs are 'fattened' here during the spring and summer, then typically sold around November, when the whole process is repeated with the arrival of the tup to 'serve' the same ewes.
