Signs of Spring – the New Lambaaaghini!
Here at YES, some of the team have interesting ‘other lives’ and Sally, our ‘Treasure Measurer’, spends many hours delivering lambs in March and April both in Hampshire and on Exmoor. The lambs are born outside but then both the lamb and ewe are moved into the barn to make sure that there are no health issues and the ewe allows the lamb to suckle. If Sally carries the lambs in her arms the ewe doesn’t look up and follow because she can’t understand where her offspring has gone. Sally used her imagination to convert an old pushchair, and this is how she transports the lamb to the barn. Now the ewe follows happily with her eyes fixed on her precious little bundle of joy.
