Lambing 2014. Pure Wensleydale Lambs

One of this year's triplets.  A lovely set of pedigree Wensleydale lambs with their Mum.   Not much chance of getting any decent wool off this lady as her lambs will have ruined it!
 So far so good Mum is managing to feed them all,  she is a sensible ewe and feeds from a hand held scoop so she can get extra nuts.   Here she is waiting in the evening for the yard gate to be opened  so she can come into the safety and warmth of the yard for the night.  I only wish all the ewes were as easy as she is.
We number all the ewes the day after they lamb and for ease of identification the twins and triplets are marked red and the singles blue
