My Sunday Photo – lambing

N’s a proper little farmer at the tender age of 5. He helps on the farm when he gets the chance, and at the moment he’s really excited because it’s lambing time which means his own 10 sheep are due to lamb.

So far 5 have been born and all are out in the paddock behind the house and doing well.  Every evening N goes out with his dad to help feed them, and in the mornings he checks that they’re all ok from the windows upstairs.  The rest of the time, his uncle has to look after the sheep along with his own.

This ewe was really nosy and seemed to be a bit put out to be having her photo taken.  By the time I’d got my camera out, the lambs had stopped jumping all over the place. It’s lovely to see them in the paddock.

  1. What a lucky little guy living on a farm and having his very own sheep!
    it must be so wonderful during lambing season.
    That has always been a dream of mine.

    1. I know what you mean. I could spend ages watching them. We did have twins die yesterday. All the singles are being born inside due to them all expected to be big and cause more hassle, but these twins were born during the snow fall and 1C temperatures, and my brother in law found them having died before he could get round to them. Sad but otherwise the rest seems to be going ok thankfully.

I love to read comments. Do tell me what you think below
