Lambs, Linda and the shearling...

Emma Heseltine: More lambs all over the place this week, we have taken quite a lot down to the hay meadow. They are transported one ewe and her lambs at a time in the quad trailer, a little ewe taxi. I love going down there on an evening to give the ewes their dinner. The lambs at that time of day are full of frolics, jumping about, climbing and racing up and down the field, burning off energy before bed time. It must be spring if the lambs are jumping.

Shearling, new quad and Kipling...

Emma Heseltine: Some of our new shearlings have decided to escape and reclassify themselves. They have jumped out of the field with all the other ewes and the tups and have got into the field with the lambs and cull ewes.

Filming, simple lambs and complicated lambs...

Emma Heseltine: We have started the week with more excitement at the Croft. The other week I had a phone call from Tim Perrett at the Soil Association. I met him at a seminar during the winter and he was telling me about a project based on the very popular lambing live which was on TV the last couple of years.
