The first of this year's lambs was born in my field a couple of days ago. Lovely to see but a bit too early for my liking given the conditions here in the hills. Suffolk x black-faced x Jacobs so quite hardy in the cold but the damp is a killer. It is not practical to bring them inside unless things get really bad so I'll keep a close watch and make sure that the ewe gets her share of feed.

Any suggestions ?
