Whilst out on Monday we came across a few sheep with lambs on the high moor.
This Scottish Blackface has twins.
Because of the harsher conditions upland sheep lamb later then lowland varieties. The majority of upland sheep lamb in the lower in-bye fields before going up onto the Commons.
The coming week of cold weather isn’t ideal ….
I saw my first moorland lambs last weekend. They were on our land in the Upper Plym Valley.
Lamb with mum with a large ‘pillow mound’ in back ground – this is a Victorian structure made to house and rear rabbits as part of the warrening activities that took place on site.
Another oneThey are tiny!
The lambs are back at Parke! The farmer lambs at his home farm and then brings the ewes and lambs over to Parke – so day by day the numbers are building up.
Keeping close together in the early days
Pretty confident youngster
Will still be a few weeks before the lambs appear on the high moor
The new lambs have finally arrived at Parke.
How cute are they? Not so sure about them all being numbered? Lambs never used to be numbered but I guess times move on!
