Onto the calendar for 5 months later (Jan 25th 2018) went my note saying "poss lambing date, Lily" and we all relaxed while nature took its course. She was likely to be our first at the lambing. You cannot hurry these things, after all. Mother Nature knows best.
|Apologies for the technically bad and not |
very edifying pic but it does show very
clearly the enlargement of Lily's udder,
called "bagging up" in the trade.
|New kids on the block, these 2 year old|
crab apple whips.
|More protection than tree for now. They |
should get away nicely.
|One of last year's babies comes up to 'point of lay' and goes for|
a sit down.
|I love the gentle range of colours of our eggs.|
|2nd job for chickens in the morning after a quick scrabble for|
breakfast seed - to the 'watering hole' for a drink. In this case
the duckling's paddling pool.
|Red Sky in the Morning, Shepherd's Warning. I do so hope not!|
