Lamb numbers are currently at 12. Sometimes I count 11 or 13 because they bounce around or snuggle up into mum’s thick fleece or hide behind something. Mrs Dunkerly, are there any mathematical techniques for counting little black lambs that bounce and run around? They don’t know how to bleat “Yes Mrs Hardy” to a register, so I just walk all around the paddock checking that all the little black fluffy lambs lift their heads or run to mum as I approach.
My favourite ewe is huge and I keep waiting for her to ‘pop’. She is an old girl who keeps the rest of the flock in order. She even pushes Rambo out of the way if she wants food. She has the most awful voice! Her voice is the sound you would choose for a rusty creaky door in a haunted castle. When I first noticed her some years ago, I wondered what on earth that dreadful sound was. You would stare and laugh if you heard it, she is certainly not Head Chorister material. But she is super friendly (or maybe greedy) always running up first to eat. Last year when she lambed she looked so proud and let me come right up to her.
