1. 8 weeks is a long time to to be sleep deprived on top of the terrible spring weather. It’s been a terrible spring for lambing this year. The weather has compounded problems and sadly seems to have killed more lambs.
    I take my hat off to all lambing farmer and their families.

  2. I had no idea. An interesting and informative post. My brother in law actually works on a farm and many of his duties are those of a shepherd. He’s a man of few words but I know lambing is one of his favourite times, despite the challenges. My sister has bottle fed several orphan lambs over the years. Will definitely share your post with them! #AnimalTales

  3. I can’t stop laughing at this post, it’s soooooo true! Glad to see you can see the funny side to lambing season, I think it’s the only way you can get through it!

  4. Phew, I’m exhausted just reading!! I’ve always wondered just how tiring the lambing season is and now I know. My childhood dream of being a farmer’s wife isn’t quite so rosy now! #AnimalTales

  5. there’s an awful lot more planning than I would’ve imagined for the lambing season. I just sort of thought the sheep got on with it and you monitored (which I know would be a lot of work) but I didn’t know how much a farmer would facilitate #animaltales

  6. Yup, totally get this and despite only having 6 ewes to lamb I was still exhausted and more than once vowed I’d put the ram in the freezer. I didn’t of course and we’ll be back doing it all again next year. I am always immensely impressed with anyone who lambs at “proper” farmer levels! An embarrassingly late visit from #ANimalTales (sorry) and a new one opens tomorrow.
