Trials and Tribulations of Hill Farming

We are coming to the end of lambing (only 8 left to lamb) and many people imagine that the hard work is done however this is not the case.  Vigilant checking of stock and extra feed is vitally important make sure the ewes and lambs remain healthy. Once again, our old enemy, the weather is against us. Its mid May yet it feels like winter with biting cold winds and poor temperatures. 

This lamb's mother has stopped producing milk so has been brought in to be hand reared.
