At long last the ewes have started lambing. They were due to start lambing on the 8th February and usually there would have been a few early starters but not this year.
Hopefully now they will be in full swing. If only the weather was a bit warmer then the grass would be growing and the ewes could be turned out onto lush green pasture, but as it is at the moment they will need to stay indoors for a few days longer than normal. This will make the lambs stronger and able to keep themselves warmer during the cold nights. If you want to come and see what happens in the lambing sheds we have arranged our lambing day again this year. Tractor and trailer rides will be leaving the village hall in Overbury on the 11th April 2010, between 10 am and 3pm. Adults will need to pay £5 but all the children get in for free. Billy and Michaela will be serving up delicious Overbury lamb Casserole in the village hall from about 12. Get there early before it all goes! Check out the farm website http://www.overburyfarms.co.uk for up to date details. I look forward to seeing you all there!
