We've been busy with lambing at Baulcombes.
The first two sets of twins went outside after being inside for twenty four hours to form mother and lamb bonds.
The ewe who had thought she had had lambs, eventually had triplets! She has done very well especially because she had become very stressed looking for her lambs all the previous day. Also, she had been scanned for twins, so hadn't received extra food rations! We tube-fed extra colostrum to the new born lambs to give them a boost, it seems to have worked, today mother and three lambs out in the field.
