This is BYM's OH, I sent Marigold some pics ans she suggested I shared them with you. My neighbours farm hand had to deal with a medical emergency at home, and at that same moment all the lambs started arriving, so once again I went along to help. The first pic is of Houdi (Houdini) his mum died and he can escape from anywhere he is put especially when he spies a bottle coming. Or we are hunting Houdi
The second pic the little lamb on the right was "hung" it's head was out but a leg was stuck back and I actually managed to put the head back and find the leg, straighten it and then the lamb came out quite easily, mum and lamb were considerably less shaky than I was after the event. My only knowledge was having read about it and seen it done. Pic was 12 hours after the event so I guess I did ok
The other pics are just a few of the other lambs.
I am quite used to my unique perfume at the moment eau de lamb. Shame I don't have a picture of tiddler, you would be less wet standing under Niagara Falls

It's frustrating isn't it! The system seems to time out on all but one image (it's not your laptop.) The only way I've found of beating it is to write the post, upload all the images in one go then rapidly place inline then send the post immediately without previewing and if you were quick enough they will all work!
The lambs are lovely!

Suffolk’s - they have no right to live on Gods clean earth!🥴
Seriously though they are difficult lambers and the lambs will lay down and die if confronted with any adversity.
Small heads and narrow shoulders save a lot of work. Top marks to you though for delivering it.

Thank you! Lovely pictures! As I have never had anything to do with any sort of sheep or lamb, other than eat it, I am quite in awe. My SIL tells me that a sheep's aim in life is to end its life ahead of time, so I understand that they aren't perhaps the brightest animals in the flock.

Don't tell my neighbour that Hen-Gen, they usually lamb without too much bother maybe because they are cross breeds, and thanks for the well done.
A sheep's aim in life does seem to be to die, with extra points if they can manage it in a particularly stupid manner.
I must look out some pictures of her Dexter cattle calves.
I look almost human in the pic, unlike my passport photo which I renewed a fortnight ago. I look like an elderly alien after a horrendous galactic journey.
The little lamb that I delivered last Friday is now out in the fields running around quite happily

Aw, they're gorgeous!! Lambs around here come early. Usually, by mid/end February, they are all bouncing around the fields. Being so near the coast, I suppose we're that bit milder. We're that bit further south too.
Lead me not into temptation. I can find the way myself!

Well done to your wife! I bet she loved cuddling that new baby. I would. :-) The middle "family" photo is adorable. Must admit, lamb is my favourite meat.Not sure why we have to import it from NZ?? Anyone know? Seems we have enough sheep over here.
