New Lambs for Spring 2011

These are the first lambs born this year at Broome Park. Once again the kerry cross shows in the┬áblack markings on their faces and knees. Mum was a little reluctant at first but hopefully she has now taken to motherhood and they won’t need to be bottle fed! There are 5 more ewes to lamb over the next few days – exciting times – hopefully they will all be twins!

The lovely Spring weather last week has brought the bees out of the hive and we were very pleased to find a healthy colony when we took a look last weekend! Now we must keep an eye on them to prevent them swarming like last year.
