New life

We have broadband!!!!!!  Paul manged to get it working late last night so I am now back in touch with the world; I just need to make sure I now find the time to start blogging again.

Things have been really hectic here, what with helping out with lambing, tractor driving and making very exciting plans for the future.  You may have been keeping up to date with whats been going on with our tweets.

If you have you will have seen that Mocha finally lambed today.  Even Alan who has been farming all his life has been saying that she should have lambed on Thursday, but she managed to keep everything crossed until this afternoon when she gave birth to two white lambs.  Unlike Rosemary's stats these are two boys; so no organic growth to our sheep flock yet this year!

Aren't they just adorable.

It looks like it will be a little while before we have any cria.  Mallika and Sienna are at 336 days, so another 10 days before they hit the Barnacre average gestation, however these girls are both maidens so our average is a little higher for them.
