All the lambs seemed to be born late in the season this year. Being on the look out for pet lambs to fatten up I was having no luck at all. Until a few weeks ago a friends mother offered me four boy lambs. We went straight away for collection. they are perfect. Texil breed, good for meat and the fleece will be adequate for textile work. They have settled in quite well. Although a concoction was administered for suspected bloat and they have been dagged to ward of maggot infection. Sheep do seam to need a lot of looking after.
