Some of the ewes are very old and maybe they are tired of having babies, we are putting out special licking blocks to try and help them. They are a bit like lollipops for sheep but in a big block. They have special ingredients, to make them extra yummy!
Luckily the weather has been perfect, lovely sunny days. Newborn lambs do not like cold, rainy days.
Skippety is going really well, he is very strong. He has two other playmates now, Princess Fiona and Blackfoot, they are both merino lambs. Their mothers both died. Blackfoot has been sleeping in the laundry until he is strong enough to join the others, it is nice and warm there.
