The sheep have been sheared now, they always look slightly embarressed somehow after their wool is gone!

A shawn sheep

There is an article on the blog on sheep shearing which you watch below.


Spring is often the busiest time of the year if you have breeding sheep. Of course, it depends on when you let the ram (male sheep) and ewes (female sheep) get together as to what time of the year the ewes give birth. We put the ewes to the ram in November which means we lamb in April. We prefer this to lambing in January because it is lighter and warmer!!

The film below (click the photo) shows you our first set of twins. The first one has been born and is still being cleaned by the ewe although it is starting to look for milk from the ewe. The sac you can see hanging out of the ewe contains the second twin. This sac falls to the ground and then the ewe will lick the sac away and clean the lamb off. This process warms the lamb and stimulates it to get it on it's feet and looking for milk. Unfortunately, the ewe took no interest in the second lamb at all, so after trying to get her to take it we had to give up and bottle feed her. She has now gone into the field with all the other sheep.

All the lambs are now nearly as large as the ewes. We will get the ewes sheared soon and I will post some footage. In the meantime they are settled in a new field with plenty of grass.

Photographs of all our domestic animals are HERE

This site is being continually updated. If you have any questions please get in touch.

We have had 7 ewes produce 8 lambs between them including one about five weeks later than all the rest who delivered her lamb in mid May.

It is possible for you to purchase a lamb which you can have information on, photos of progress and then the meat from after slaughter. You can email for details.
