A little view of the maternity ward
This is one of triplets. Unfortunately, one died shortly after birth and the other sibling will probably not last the day. However, this one seems to be feeding okay so we're doing everything we can to keep him fit and healthy.
And this is a single born yesterday afternoon, tucked into mum for warmth.
The ewes with orange and green tags in their ears are called 'Gimmers'. This is another name for a young female sheep reared for breeding purposes. We bought 40 gimmers in October last year and put them in the field ready to join the "Jigsaw Farm family"
I dedicate this post to the beautiful little sweetheart who is the daughter of Diary of a (not so) Single Mum and I promise to have a video for you soon.
