First lamb of the season

It's a boy!

This little lamb arrived this morning. Our grain barn has been transformed into a lambing shed and the ewes are ready to give birth.

Lamb number 1 will stay with his mum in a pen for a couple of days until he is steady on his feet and then they will both go back in a field together.

We have 140 ewes in the lambing shed at the moment and a further 58 in a field which aren't due to give birth until mid April.

I will take our SLR camera into the barn over the next few days and take some better photos of the babies and our set up.
