Lambing

This morning Littlest Jammer pointed out to me that Emily Button had only ever met a horse (forgetting our own pets!) so today we took Emily to get up close and personal with some hundreds of sheep.
We headed off to Kingston Maurward for Lambing Weekend. Emily and the jammers were not disappointed. There were already dozens of lambs to aah over.
Then of course you have to try and choose your favourite and no, they don't all look the same.
 
Here's my favourite - Pirate Lamb.
Emily didn't quite get to see a birth but we only missed this pair by a few minutes.
Fortunately the rest of the animals were a bit less gory.
Emily got to know the goats
as did Eldest Jammer.
Another first for Emily; the tractor ride.
Past...
 Which one would you choose?
If you're local it's on again tomorrow and next weekend until they're all lambed out.
