Ewe-Ewe had 3 lambs. She was getting bigger and bigger and around lunch time on the 9th of March she gave birth to 3 lambs, equal sizes then and now, all doing really well. She has 2 ewes and 1 ram, actually he was castrated last week. They are 18 days old, eating hay, and a few pellets, mostly walk into the feeding buckets, which really annoys the ewes as they don’t really want to eat the food after that. I try and give them food separately but for now they mostly waste it.
Daisy is due on the 16th of April, looks ok, calm, I believe she is in lamb as the tummy is bigger than it should be. We left them together during pregnancy and after and they have been very good, Daisy has been very good and tolerant towards the lambs.
First picture the happy trio, second is Lazy the ram, Maisie and Hazy with the black legs, she is pretty adventures.
Meddy is doing well, still gets into any mud or paddle or anything wet and dirty she manages to find, last week she fell into a mud hole her chest was brown. Can’t wait when we connect the hose it is so much easier to just wash her with that rather than with buckets and she does not like that so the cooperation is not there. Spring is here now so roll on the hose, must wait for the cold weather to pass.
We are both pretty well, I am getting ready for my knee op, but for now we are still enjoying the snow on the slopes while we can.
Meddy on a walk around her favorite ditch, frozen art, air frost on the trees only on the North side, and a lovely view – Vratna/ Mala Fatra.
The bees, have been out and about on warm and sunny days, the hazels started to flower, then a cold snap came but they came back soon after, pussy willows started to flower as well, have not looked into the hive, left them all winter just kept and eye on the entrance where you could see dead bees and then nothing, bees flying, clearing, bringing in pollen. Hoping to get another nuc and make one myself just from one frame. Depends on the weather.
