It all happens very fast in fact.
Waves this morning.
The ewes are either Empty (no lamb) Twin or Single.
Our scanning results were slightly down on last year, but better than we had expected given the poor weather the ewes and gimmers have had over the last few months. Most of the Empties are gimmers, last years hoggs, who have perhaps not got to the weight they need to be in order to hold a pregnancy.
It is still in sheep terms a long way until lambing and we must not count our chickens before they hatch.
