Spring is speeding by at the moment, we're almost finished lambing, and have been shedding out(taking out any ewes that are still to lamb, or who are no longer rearing a lamb) in preparation for tailing(some call it docking) the lambs in a week or two. The late lambers are going into a new paddock closer to home, and the 'has-beens' are off to a crop paddock to free up grass pasture for ewes who are rearing lambs.
We have about 18 pet/orphan lambs we are feeding at the moment, three times a day. When they are very young it is 4 times daily, and in a month or so will be down to twice a day. It's much quicker once they get onto these buckets, feeding 7 at a time, with a few little ones still on bottles. The first 7 get put in the pen for feeding and then the ones on the outside get their turn, otherwise it gets pretty confusing who's been done and things get messy!
So there has been lots of this happening here, as the girls also have a pet calf each for the first time, saved from the bobby calf(veal) truck from one of our local dairy farmers.
