Day old “Hope” the lamb. Born at 9.30 am Saturday 9th April on Grand National Day. Mrs Moulton was lucky enough to be in school to watch the lamb being born. “Hope” weighed 3kg and is a lovely healthy girl. Mum and baby doing well. Next to lamb is Dolly the blonde sheep and one, maybe two, of the little brown ewes are also yet to lamb.
I trimmed the ewes hooves to prevent foot rot, and also trimmed her fleece round the sides to help the lamb find milk.
