Notable Midwifery tales:
Nothing like the third week in August to deliver some wintery weather just when the first signs of Spring have started. 😉 Thankfully, the weather isn’t horrendous and the sheep are in fine fettle with plenty of feed and shelter.
Today it was decided to engage some “gardening contractors” to come in and tidy up a bit around the old house…..
The garden beds even saw some weeding and fertilising. 😉
I may get this crew in again…. but possibly not once the roses are back in full leaf! LOL
Four lambs born today and everything was quiet and lacking in drama. Just as we like it!
The pet lambs are full of vim and vigour too. 🙂 They’ve heard that we’re slightly re-jigging the Friends of Beersheba Farm and the change could involve them….. 😉 Stay tuned. 🙂
