Counting Lambs

Lambing continues into mid-April when all the sheep will have had their lambs. This year 4 sheep had 3 lambs each. With 2 teats, ewes can successfully rear only twins, so the third lamb from 2 sets of triplets has been ‘mothered on’ to a sheep with only 1 lamb, the remaining 2 being reared as pet lambs. Bottle feeding is done 3 times per day.
