One of the dearest things to do in Spring
is visit a farm during the lambing season

And if your timing is right,
you may see one being born

Thanks to ultrasound,
the farm sorts the pregnant ewes into different pens
according to how many lambs each mama is expecting (usually 1 to 3)

The more babies she is carrying, the more help she may need to deliver safely

Once born, the mama and babes are painted with a number on their backs
so the staff can keep the family together

More going on at the farm

Definitely the season for newborns,
lots of other babies are seen on the farm

With sun, blossoms, and the lambing season
England is at its best right now :)

Have a great week!
