Gimmer sale and sheep pedicure

Some neighbours of ours had asked to buy a few of our little ewe lambs (gimmer lambs), which we were delighted to sell. They were looking for some pretty lawn mowers to help keep on top of their equine paddocks which are awkward to top with a tractor.

Today we caught up all but two of our flock and gave them all a hoof trim which was a bit overdue to be honest. Ewes 28 and 34 have been wormed as have Rambo, Wesley and Ellie. There are 3 tups and 2 gimmer lambs to take to the abattoir at some point soon. We’ll catch the two elusive ewes over the next couple of weeks – they’re not out of date but it would be good to get them before they lamb.
