When you are sheep farming there are always tasks that need doing. depending on the month we're in there are tasks such as bringing in the sheep to pass through at footbath in single file to ensure prevention of foot problems in the sheep, or we might need to catch the odd lame one to administer medicine.
in March and April the mothers start to have lambs and continue to do so until the middle of May. Occasionally we need to catch them and assist with their lambing. we continually need to move the mothers and lambs to a new field, leaving the ones yet to lamb on their own.
so, depending on the time of spring you arrive, I will take you with me to perform the routine tasks that I will be doing and I will often need your assistance in guiding sheep where we need to move them!!
