Notable Midwifery tales:
Well, looks like we’re finally finished for 2019!
It wasn’t a bad effort in the end – despite the season and a shorter than usual “joining” period. We actually expected a much lower figure of lambs because of the reduced time frame. Looks like the rams had ideas of their own…!
We hope you’ve enjoyed our annual lambing journey. 🙂
