  1. I hope lots of people read this and take on board how much work goes into raising the lamb that they see on their pates .. and buying British (or perhaps French on my part) is so important to support small farmers. Great post for #AnimalTales – thank you!

  2. I really enjoyed learning all about the process of lambing. I farm, but only have chickens, ducks and geese! It seems like a lot of work, but very rewarding and well worth it!

  3. Eid has just finished in the Arabic world, we were making sheep pictures in school to prepare for the celebrations, Lambs are very important in this, as they are slaughtered as a sacrifice to God.

    Lovely article Emma…

    Some years ago I happened to say in front of the friend of one of my sons that I had always wanted to pat a lamb. I had no idea his parents had a smallholding, but a couple of days later he turned up with a newborn lamb in a box for me to pat….I was surprised and utterly enchanted but the poor little thing was just skin and bone and was shaking,,,but I thought what a lovely thing it was to do for me!
