I had a busy morning helping my sheep farming friend Alan with his sheep scanning. I really enjoy helping him out, he's been such a help and support to me since we moved here it is nice to be able to give something back.

We weren't actually doing the field of ewes that included my two, but we went and fetched them in the 'sheep taxi' so they could be scanned with the first batch. Great news they are both in lamb and both having twins. Just got to wait three or four months for them to produce now!

The weanlings have been extremely energetic this afternoon, charging round and jumping about. They have all really come out of their shells since being weaned, even Sienna who was a real squealer initially is getting braver. I will try and start a spot of halter training with them soon.

Gaussian continues to be a good boy with his bottles, and I am still trying to encourage him to try some hard feed.

Sounds like you've been very busy lately...and the weanlings are doing well, great news about Gaussian finding his appetite !
Good news about your scan results today, look forward to seeing some new lamb photos in spring time !
