Today we are back in the grip of Siberian weather. Daisy the bottle-fed cross-Cheviot from Bunnavoneader has decided to grace us with her presence at the dinner trough now. Does this mean she has increased appetite because she is in lamb? Or because its turned cold again? Or she just like shredded beet? We will wait and see...... I see a Frisian hen got in on the action - they like the beet too. Wonder if it makes the eggs taste sweet?
And here are three other ewes, heads down in the bucket of "Topflock" lick which we bought them from Lewis Crofters Ltd in Stornoway. They are looking like they are enjoying it and we hope it will provide the extra minerals and vitamins required to produce lively little lambs when the time comes. The first is due around 27th March I think, so there is still a bit to go.
