We have lambs!

Our first batch of tame lambs have arrived, 6 altogether and between 1 week and 3 weeks old.

Our llamas are fussy when it comes to eating grass, and there are huge areas which we have to cut, and so these lambs will be saving us some petrol and wear and tear on the ride on grass cutting machine.

For the next 4-5 weeks it will be bottle feeding though.

3 times a day!

Having had a big lunch this lot are now trying to find a cosy corner to have a lie down.

They have this shed to live in for a few weeks until they are used to us and their surroundings, they have an outside area where they can get fresh air and have a jump & play, and then they will be let loose in a small enclosure in the "lambs field" before then having the run of the whole field.

We hope to be able to get another batch in around two weeks time, and when large enough 4 or 5 of them will join the llamas to help them eat their grass.
