Lambing Live baaa

After watching Lambing Live I got the urge to go to Wales. My cousins live there and they have live stock and I knew that they would be lambing now. So yesterday saw us head to Snowdonia, to see the family. After a lovely lunch in the Snowdonia Park, we then went to see the sheepies. The lambs were just gorgeous, and there were 7 needing extra care. They were the ones I spent my time with. I got to feed one but they were all so affectionate and enjoyed sucking on my fingers. I can't believe how rough their fleeces feel. Anyway thought I'd share my experience and some of the piccies hubby took. One is of the expectant mums. My cousin told me there were 100 waiting to give birth and at least another 100 still in the fields. As you can imagine it is their busiest time of the year. My cousin even said that I could take one of the orphans home if I wanted. Oh I was so tempted, but can you imagine what the neighbours would say when we moved in to our new house with a dog and a sheep ha ha (what a thought!!!).


  1. oooh I wouldn't have resisted I would of had to take one home!
    hope you had a lovely time. TX
