Two very busy months for us here at Home Farm
Mid September early preparations were made for our Bluefaced Leicester shearling ewes and our ram ready for tupping at the end of September - hoping to have our Bluefaced lambs born from 18 February 2016.
He was painted blue underneath and looked very proud to be escorted to his 'ladies'. Each time he 'tups' he leaves a mark on their back and we can make a note of the date we expect her lamb to be born. We subsequently changed his colour to red and all but one was tupped by the end of last week. He looked miserable when Jason caught him and pulled him out from the field.
Early October Home Farm Wensleydales very first
a great experience and we have had wonderful feedback. Ally Pally - we hope to see you again 5 - 9 October 2016 and this time bringing you a new range of Double Knitting yarns. This halloween there will be a lot of knitted orange pumpkins around - hope you all love them and have fun knitting them!
