Spend the last 4 days emptying crap out of one of the lambing sheds, don't know why I save half of it:scratchhead:. Desided to bring 300 home and house um a month early, not due till end of Feb but ground that wet, no where dry to feed and could look better and I don't want them to lose flesh. Plus there mite be a bite of grass when lambs are ready to go out. Plenty of haylage so tomorrow there coming in. To many dog walkers to walk um home so ill have to trailer the lot:mad:. Get um home then worm and fluke and footbath The other half of the flock are OK, there on the moor which is a lot dryer and there due end of March. If any one is interested I will keep the photos coming right through to lambing to turn out, I don't want to bore every body:(:(.

Out of interest, what size are your pens and how many sheep can you put in each pen? Also wondered where you put up your little pens?
