2016 was our second year of lambing, and we were all quite nervous going into it this time.
Our new Ram, “Bertie” moved in last summer, and has been in the fields with the ewes since November. Bertie is a Texel sheep. Texel sheep originate from the island of Texel in the Netherlands, and are hardy, tough and docile. Their lambs are reported to have a great will to survive at birth, which bodes well!
Fun Fact: Did you know the word Dumbledore (made famous by the Harry Potter stories) is the Cornish word for bumblebee?
