A Guest gets to feed the lambs

One of our recent guests, all the way from Canada, was fortunate enough to be around at the right time to pop round to the farm and get a chance to feed the lambs. These lambs are the third ones to be born from the ewes and as the ewes can only manage to feed two the third has to get hand fed.
Rebecca was lucky enough to feed them and to give them a cuddle as well. The lambs will only be kept in the pens for a short time and will be let out into the fields quite soon.
Rob, the farmer, also has some fine Tamworth pigs at the moment so hopefully we can get a photo of them soon.

Spring Gardening

The hard work has started in the garden again but we had a willing volunteer to help us the other day. Meisie decided that giving a helping hand meant hitching a lift in the wheelbarrow.
The bulbs are bursting forth and all of the shrubs are coming to life. Hopefully in a couple of weeks we will start to see some green shoots if we keep having the weather like today. It was so warm and sunny with only a breath of wind and just so pleasant.
