LambingLambing time is a great experience for our visitors. This year we had over 400 ewes to lamb. All our ewes lamb indoors enabling visitors to see "lambing live", as well as ewes with newborn lambs at foot taking their first steps - its a truly special experience.
Meet our orphan lambs and get to bottle feed them. This activity is wonderful fun for all ages and everyone can get involved.
Hear from our knowledgeable staff how this years lambing went and how special spring time is down on our farm.
ScanningDuring December, our first flock of ewes are scanned by Ian Beckett so that we knew what to expect during January and throughout February. This is perfect news for visitors during February half term looking to come and watch 'Live Lambing'.
The picture opposite reveals that the ewe from this scan is carrying twins.
Lambing January 2017Great News! A January scanning session revealed that our first flock of 220 ewes are expecting more than 400 lambs over a four week period. The first lamb is due 12th January.
What a surprise!This brave mum gave us all a surprise by giving birth to quads when we were expecting triplets. Despite the total weight of all four lambs being 15kg, she looked remarkably relaxed (and relieved!) afterwards. All lambs were safe and well.
Paul had a job trying to lift them!......
New Ram PowerThis 'Hampshire Down' is one of four of our rams. He will be responsible for tupping a small flock of ewes that will then lamb next spring.
