Busy calving and lambing
With the country in lockdown there’s at least some comfort to the normal hectic routine of calving and lambing. Whilst it’s still far too early to count chickens (or lambs of calves!) we’ve been delighted that the many first time mothers, particularly in the herd, have not had complicated births. Of course the weather helps although, strangely, we now find ourselves wishing for a bit of rain to help the grass grow. What a sadness that there are no holidaymakers in our cottages to enjoy the weather and see the new-borns.
