Sorry - blogging has taken a back seat due to lambing!  Also the camera has broken - can't recognise memory card all of a sudden.  Tomorrow - if  sheep with a prolapse behaves herself - I am off to the camera shop so expect a cornucopia of photos in the near future.

Here are some lambs - photos taken on phone - to be going on with!
That's my natty leopard print lambing bag hanging on the fence post!
Lovely set of Black Welsh Mountain triplets

And, Judi, if you read this - can't seem to comment on your blog but I love that Fairisle jumper!

Pole Dancing

Today the mud was beginning to dry up but I don't think it will be for long!  Very windy on the hill for the last few days and the Grave Digger was clinging on to the sign post as he attempted to repaint the letters.  Is there no end to this man's talents?!
Lambs not coming for another week or so but Grace - the little Southdown - caused a bit of a panic with a prolapse of her cervix.  It is now safely back in with a spoon, normally they fall out when I do it but Kev tied it in with a bit of bailer twine so I think it is staying put!
The other ewes are all having a bit of a funny five minutes with a lot of head butting and falling out with each other!
Alpacas are all well, if muddy but for some reason the photos will not come of the camera card so have to leave them for next time.  Their fleece has gone to Two Rivers Mill so I am eagerly awaiting the return of some new yarn to knit up in time for the next market.
