Coming Home!



So the last few weeks here at the farm have been busy ones moving a lot of our pregnant sheep back towards the farm ready for lambing in April. In this photo there are 440 sheep waiting patiently to be loaded up to travel to pastures new. As well as this there is general maintenance of the farm and machinery as well as scanning the sheep to see how many lambs they have.

2017


This is what the scenes have been like on the farm this week; foggy, frosty and frightfully cold. Despite the elements farm life still carries on with feeding, checking and moving the animals as well as the general maintenance and upkeep of our farm machinery.

New Life

The photo of this heifer calf was taken just 10 minutes after she was born.  We had to assist her mother as she was a first time calver and baby was struggling to come out. Mother and baby doing well.

Dobbin

Meet Dobbin, one of our Limousin Bulls. We transported him down to the RSPB Arne water meadows this week to start mingling with some new ladies! He certainly made an impression, the ladies were skipping and going!

Our Sheep Dogs

Jed is one of the working sheep dogs on the farm. It never ceases to amaze the intelligence of these animals, being able to listen to commands and move sheep between the fields! Sheep dog training is intense and it can take two years before a they are fully trained.
