Lambing Season in Wales: No Sleep for the Weary
Kate Humble, who's new to farming, recounts the joys and dramas of lambing season on her farm in Wales.
The lamb was beautiful. I had managed to ease her out backwards, and now she was lying next to her mum, being licked and fussed over. I sat there looking on, feeling a bit tearful, like a proud granny. Over the next couple of days we had a set of ram lamb twins and another couple of single lambs, all born on their own without help or incident. Our little flock was growing.
