Notable Midwifery tales:
Cold, drizzly, occasional sunshine and lots of lambs. That’s today in a nutshell. LOL
Seven lambs born today but with the weather and this and that I forgot (!) to take photos.
Two sets of twins today sired by the silver English Leicester boy. Each was 1 black and 1 white lamb. The black ones are all boys. Waaaahhhhh LOL I wanted a black ram for years and now I am getting them in spades but no ewes. Haha. One coloured EL ewe left so all going well she will have 2 girls or a boy/girl combo (she has scanned with twins).
The “gardening crew” was allowed back into the garden for a few hours today. They were very impressed. They’ve made an impact on the garden beds too…. hahaha
A couple of pics from the last few days….
