This week we’ve taken advantage of the good weather & the sheep have been sheared! It’s always a relief when this has been done as the warmer weather generally means that there are more flies around and flystrike on a sheep is not a pleasant thing!
It’s a very skilled job to get a sheep shorn well (believe me it’s not easy!) so many thanks to our friend in sheep Mick Owen who’s done us proud yet again!

All looking sheepshake! πŸ˜€

Lovely photos x

Ahh that is why you sent Si to the pub. I have seen his shearing abilities!!!

Our latest batch of Jacob lambskins has arrived!
They are tanned in the UK and each one is unique.
Perfect draped on a sofa or chair for a lovely cosy look in your home or a superb gift!
Available for Β£75 each & can be posted if required – see photos for sizes (measurements are of the leather – the actual rug will appear about 10cm bigger!)

It seems as though our lack of care for the bees over the last few weeks may have inadvertently paid off!
We should have done inspections but when we were free it was either too cold or too wet.Then we spotted that one of the hives had swarmed – but hadn’t left the apiary!
We quickly scooped them up into a nuc & they seem to still be there – job done!
No need to split hive or search for the queen – it has done it itself!!

The miles of electric fencing are all up at last & the sheep and young cows have been moved on to the fresh grazing. The pregnant (we hope!) cows are now nearer the house ready for calving. First calves are due at the end of May 🀞 See MoreSee Less

We are still reminiscing (and boasting to our friends 😊) on last week’s holiday in your splendid cottage and near all those beautiful animals. Thanks again ! Best regards from the Stevens family.

It’s been another busy week on the farm! After a great weekend away at the Jacob Sheep Society AGM we have had had a really full on week – the pig enclosure has been tidied up & the piglets have arrived; camping field has been harrowed; the bees have been recovered after the cows broke into the apiary; the first lot of electric fencing has gone up & the cows are out on grass (hooray!); we have planted a hedge round the chicken run to stop it looking quite so much like a prison camp & the lambs have had their first vaccinations – oh, & there were three cottage cleans in amongst all that too!!!
Phew!

How funny, great picture.

This is one of our tiny triplets (not quite so tiny now!) & that’s not her mum underneath her! Mum was off grazing somewhere so this little one just climbed aboard the nearest ewe & curled up – she’ll do well I think!πŸ™‚ See MoreSee Less

Sooo cute!!

Wow you have loads!

I am going to miss your “lamb-cam” soooo much! Congratulations on a hard job well done. I take my hat off to both of you πŸ‘

You have lots of baby lambs! I love watching the baby races!!

Is that a '50s Ford tractor in the background? How long before they try to climb up and stand on the hood?

There was a short break in the weather yesterday so we managed to get a few of the ewes & lambs outside at last!
Here are the quads who are doing amazingly well – at just over a week old they are 5 – 6kg. Mum has brought them up without any assistance from us (but she is eating loads!). We will keep a close eye on them all to check she can manage but so far so good!

Great picture

The sheep are a little perturbed by the squatter that’s moved into their hay rack – the sharp peck on the nose delivered when they tried to move her on was just too much!πŸ”πŸ See MoreSee Less
