Started Lambing 2013

Aberystwyth, Wales, and I'm back Lambing again for 2013 and LOVING it!

We started in the second week of February so have done a few nights already - am doing 3 or 4 nights a week for Richard and then will start the Uni farm in a few weeks!

This year the girls from last year aren't coming so I have a few new friends coming along who've never need lambing before so am teaching them the ropes!

Lambing sequence:
Looks like a big Suffolk single

Wiped the gunk away from his mouth and he was up and running around in 10 mins!
After this we'd give him Spectam (a scour halt) and spray a strong Iodine solution on his navel to stop infections trafficking up it and to stop joint ill.
