Sometimes despite our best efforts animals take matters into their own hands. We had a ram that discovered how to crawl through the fences this summer. Luckily, I managed to catch him and move him to a more secure pen, but not before he got into a bit of trouble. As a result, 4 ewes lambed over the Christmas holidays. Luckily, it was only 4 and I sorted them out so I could keep a close eye on them and keep them in the barn. They have been spending nights in the barn during the cold weather, and are doing well and growing like weeds!
