The lambs are now at least 12 weeks old and ready to be weaned. We brought them in, checked and treated for worms, and separated them. The lambs are in a paddock with Candy as their guardian. So far this evening they have been crying for their mamas non stop.
Candy seems quite happy with her new job, lying quietly and watching her herd. She even licked one of the small ones to comfort him.
Primrose has been in a smal lot with the goats. It seemed that she needed more room and fresh grass to eat, so she took a walk up the hill. She will help Candy and Bailey watch over the sheep for a while.
