Our ewes have had lots of lambs this year , including the sextuplet from last year that had five this year. We are hand rearing about 50 lambs with the occasional help of our visitors. Our Lavender Pekin chickens now have 7 chicks
Lambing is over as the last sheep lambed today. She had two healthy lambs. Proud parents of Lavender Pekin chicks that hatched yesterday. They look like little balls of fluff, a little camera shy at present.
This ewe made the news at lambing last spring by giving birth to six healthy lambs. She has been scanned this year to give birth to five or possibly six lambs again.
Rachael, Rorie and friends did a wonderful circular seven mile walk from the Marquis of Lorne pub up over the ancient hill fort on Eggardon Hill, down over Barrowlands and Wytherston farms. Superb pub lunch at the end. This circular walk can also be started from Colesmoor adding a mile to the walk.
This picture was taken from the double room with roe deer grazing on a frosty winter morning. The village of Toller Porcorum is behind the woodland.
