I've taken the mothering pens down today and have made a big pen with all of them together, the lambs love the extra space and when I feed the ewes the lambs just go besurk! !! so much more space for them.Its better for the sheep too, they can wonder about alot more and now they have that special bond between them, they will mix in and when the mum calls her own lambs will go to her for a feed, they soon learn if they pick the wrong udder they will get a thump from that ewe.Theres something very special about seeing young lambs in January.
