It has come to my attention that so many people don't know much about sheep or lambing.

Growing up I spent some weekends and holidays at my sister and brother in laws farm and learnt a bit about sheep and lambing etc... I did an animal care diploma and the practical par...

On Friday 7th June Carl from Agscan came to scan our sheep.  

It was so exciting and knowing who was pregnant and how many they are having means that I can feed them in late stage pregnancy appropriately and be prepared.

The lease ram Tiddleywink mated the ewes, which gives us due dates between 29th August to the 16th September all going well.  Tiddleywink went home early because he was so pumped on hormones and causing trouble.

Today we picked up a ram lamb from Strickland Wiltshires.  I got to pick him from a group of 7 and while it was a very hard choice I think he compliments my ewes the best.  

We named him "Tiddleywink" which is a place in Wiltshire, England.  But he also i...

On the 19th of August I got a call from Lyn Strickland in the Hawkes Bay to say they had picked up a very strong healthy ewe lamb who was approx 4 days old and her Mum had died.  That afternoon we made the trip over to pick up the beautiful lamb :-)

The photo above was taken the day he arrived.

Parsley & Nutmeg are so big now but the spoilt babies are still on one bottle feed a day.  They get Reliance Lamb performance pellets morning and night and are thriving.

They only went to one bottle a day on Boxing day.

In a couple of weeks they will be weaned fully.  Th...

On the 9th September Parsley got a new friend called Nutmeg.  They hit it off straight away despite the 4 weeks age difference.  Nutmeg was a week old when we got her and wasn't in great shape as she'd had a very rough start to life.  With the help of antibiotics and l...
