Life gets busier

Posted on: Saturday, September 6th, 2014 in: Cows, Sheep, Uncategorized

Last Tuesday Ember (the last of the sheep to lamb) pushed out her three!  They were all girls and DD was keen to hand raise one (supposedly for pet day in a few months).  We left all three on the mother for a few days, after making sure that she could count to three.  However, […]

And so it begins…

A number of new additions during the worst weekend of weather for a while.

It All Happens At Once

Posted on: Sunday, November 28th, 2010 in: Crafts, General, Pigs, Sheep

Yesterday was the day of for everything to happen. My car was getting a new motor, hopefully no more oil leak. Richard has very kindly offered to put it in for us, and even found us a very good deal on the now one. Thank you Richard. Our new little piglets were due to arrive […]

A Quick Update

Posted on: Monday, October 11th, 2010 in: Cows, Sheep

It is freezing cold today, we have even had hail which is unusual for this time of the year. Anyway it is a good day do an update. Quite alot of things have happened here lately and although I have been meaning to come here and tell all about it, time has got away form […]

And So It Begins

Posted on: Tuesday, August 31st, 2010 in: Sheep

Yesterday afternoon, the first lamb arrived, and not from the ewe we thought would be first. A tiny little ewe lamb that failed to stand and so didn’t get her first feed, or any other feed from mum. After about an hour I decided that intervention was going to be needed, so I went out […]

Mr. Ram Settles In

Posted on: Sunday, April 11th, 2010 in: Sheep

This is a follow-up to The Girls Get A Visitor. It’s now been a week since Mr. Ram arrived and I’m happy to say that he appears to have settled in.  He is often seen sitting or eating with the whole group of girls, instead of just one or two.

The Girls Get A Visitor

Posted on: Monday, April 5th, 2010 in: Sheep

After such a poor lambing season in 2008 (two survivors out of 12 lambs), we opted not to get a ram last year.  Needless to say, this resulted in some reasonably fat sheet! This year we decided to take the plunge again, borrowing a ram for a few weeks.  Unlike 2008, we are planning to […]

I Birthed My First Lamb

Posted on: Friday, October 24th, 2008 in: Sheep

Its always the pets that cause problems and Sammies pet lamb from last year is no exception. Of course for the first time in weeks I didn’t check them this morning, but did after lunch. And sure enough there she was with the face of a lamb sticking out her rear end. And of course […]

A New Arrival

Posted on: Wednesday, September 24th, 2008 in: Sheep

What a morning. I went out to do the usual feeding and checking of all our animals. Chickens are all good, pigs are all good. Normally I would feed the horses and check the cows next, but today I checked one bunch of sheep in the paddock. Some of these are looking a bit thin […]

Random Thoughts as the Seasons Change

Posted on: Monday, April 7th, 2008 in: Garden, Sheep, Uncategorized

Its been awhile since I have written, as there hasn’t seemed to be anything that stands out to write about. That isn’t to say that we have not been doing anything, but just life been going through one of those times when it just chugs on, while you seem to just do the same things […]
