Spring time on the farm 🐥

The first spring lamb Larry.

Hi I hope you are all well and enjoyed Easter.  I miss seeing you all at Cart Mill family centre. I can’t wait to be back there with you all.

This is Eggward he is a Polish bantam.

As some of you may know I’m fortunate enough to live on a farm. Spring time is an extremely busy exciting time for us as lots of baby animals are born. I thought I would share some pictures of what myself and my family have been doing during these strange historic times. Hopefully they will make you smile.
 

This is a little welsummer chick.

The little chicks come out of the incubator after they have hatched and are placed under the heat lamp to keep them warm.
This miniature Shetland pony is the newest edition at just two days old. Can you think of a nice name for her?

This is a Texel Ewe with her lamb.
This is a Kerry Hill lamb and ewe.

 

We have had plenty to do on the farm. Rae collects the eggs for our lunch. We have a few different types of chickens . The duck is George he is a silver Appleyard. In the background you can see the guineafowl, I will post a better picture of them next time.
Lots of our miniature Shetland pony’s are due to foal in April. We keep a close eye on them to make sure they are healthy. Our fields are quite spread out and I’m a bit lazy so we use quad bikes to check on the pony’s.
Here Rae is helping to dig a hole to let the water away. He is in a mini digger.
