Baby Lambs

Sadly this year I had to say goodbye to two of my old lady Castlemilk Sheep who were twelve years old and I bought them as lambs. This leaves me two more old Castlmilk sheep and my three black Ouessant sheep.
I have decided to replenish my stock and have arranged to buy four wethers (boy lambs) from Tina Archer in Gloucestershire who breeds Ouessant sheep. Tina kindly sent me a photo of the lambs and I will collect them from her when they are weaned later in the year.

New Road Wall

Many of our regular guests will remember that when they open the gate to Burrow Farm the wall beside the entrance was in a very bad state of repair with stones often falling onto the driveway. We wanted to make sure none of our guests ended up with a large stone on their toes, so this spring Russel Liversidge who built the wall around the outdoor riding arena came and restored the wall, taking it back to ground level and then rebuilding. We are very pleased with the work and have had several comments from passing neighbours.
