Happy New Year

Happy New Year.

Today our shed is ready for some new arrivals & tomorrow our Lincoln Longwool sheep are coming back to the yard for lambing. Very excited about this, Nell is due on Monday, she is the first of 22 sheep we have this year to lamb. It snowed today so I can't wait to get the girls in the dry & warm. Some late nights over the next few weeks I think, sheep are not as considerate as alpacas & normally find the most inconvenient time to lamb! Nell has had 2 ram lambs Gideon & Frederick so I'm really hoping for a girl or twin girls would be even better. The Lincoln Longwool prefix letter is I for this year & we have a few names for consideration.
