Watch the visitors to Mead Open Farm see this years new lambs.
Well that certainly got all the expectant mums on their feet. The farmer came into the barn with about four sheepdogs at his heel who were traipsing back and forth along the corridor at the top of the screen. Not sure what was going on....perhaps they were bringing in some more mums? The ewes are still staring at something off-cam but don't seem too alarmed, and I suppose they're quite used to the sheepdogs.
Hi Lulu,Marjean & everyone,
Not getting anything done here either. lol I keep checking the screen. It's a shame life is getting in the way of our viewing schedule. lol Would love to see a delivery!
Still waiting !!!!!!!!!! Off to do some stitching now. !!!!!
Good girls. Thank you for waiting. Kindly proceed to have babies now.
Right, that's it, I have to go out somewhere for an hour. You ewes, please hold off having babies until I get back !
The way some of these ewes are waddling around, some more births must be imminent! Staff have checked on them twice in 10 minutes, so they must be expecting some action soon. I wish the sheep wouldn't head-butt each other in the belly like they do, given that they're all carrying babies.
I thought that too Lulu. They looked a bit grumpy to me. Have not seen much action with regards to births, just a lot of munching, laying down and wandering around. !!!
Hi Marjean....Several times I thought a birth must be imminent when one or other of them froze for a few minutes with a look of intense concentration on her face, and I thought Aha! something is definitely happening! But they were just pretending because they know I'm sitting here with my nose to the screen waiting waiting waiting, when I should be doing my household chores and catching up on my paperwork and other important stuff. But the moment I leave my computer, THAT'S the moment the next lamb will be born, I just know it!
Nothing happened yet from what I can see. As you say they are teasing us, and like you every time one stops and stands I am waiting !!!!!!!!!! Off to do some stitching now.
Hope to see the next happy event.
