New Born Lamb

This is our most recent arrival immediately after being born.   A Wensleydale Cross lamb and it was far too big for an easy birth.  The yellow colouring shows that the lamb was stressed while being born.  Mind you so were we,  luckily it was in the correct position and my husband Charles is strong when it comes to pulling lambs.  All seems well now, the lamb is strong and the ewe is back on her feet but it took her a little time to recover

  1. So glad the little lamb arrived safely. It can be a stressful time alright; my dad has lost quite a few lambs and one ewe this season. Thankfully, they are all finished for this year!
