New Arrivals!

We received a phone call this morning with exciting news: there are two new additions to the family!!

One of my mother-in-law's sheep gave birth to twins this morning. It was a bit hairy - one was very large and was in the breach position (legs first) which made it a very difficult birth and the vet had to be called to assist.

But all's well that ends well, and mother and lambs are doing fine.

Here they are, two little ewe-lambs called Danni and Daisy :)

The Danni is the bigger lamb, on the right; she is the one who stuck in the breach position. Poor little lamb!

I can't wait to head up there and see them :)

You can see last year's lambs here


  1. Hi Debbie, your mum in laws lambs are so cute and I loved reading about your National trust visit....what an interesting and beautiful property.

    Maybe you could add a followers button to your side bar....I would follow your blog.

    1. Hi, thank you so much! (For the comment and the advice!)
      After much fiddling around trying to work out what was best, I have signed up and added a Bloglovin' button. I'm very much still learning about blogging, so I will also look around when I get a chance and see if there is another way for people to follow if they don't sign up to Bloglovin'. And I've followed you on Bloglovin' too :)
      Thank you!

  2. aw aren't they sweet! I love their spots

    1. They are so cute :) They are Jacob's sheep so they always have some markings - I love it when they have the little spots on their knees! x
